Oh, memories! Do you remember when the food arrived at our house in a can? If you are very young it is impossible to remember that time but surely you will have seen some relic in the grandmother’s house, because as I say everything was sold canned. Cookies, coffee, infusions, chocolate, canned olive oil was marketed in a can. Those special vintage cans are ideal for decorating our house. But if you don’t have a chance to get some antiques, don’t worry, because you can also add a special touch to a room with modern cans.
But before continuing, we have to say that we need to reduce the plastic in the kitchen and the garbage we produce. Garbage is organic in most cases. And I want to take advantage of this article to raise awareness about the issue of plastic in our shopping cart. And make a note of the importance of reducing your consumption.
The cans are 100% recyclable containers but also, instead of taking them to recycle, you can also give them another chance. From a decorative view, they are unique pieces. There are DIY projects that you can do with cans of which we also give you many ideas. Because in today’s article we are going to focus on the decorative power of cans!

A collection of vintage cans will also stand out in your living room. If you have a significant amount you must reserve a free place, such as a piece of furniture or a special shelf.
