Elvis has left the bathroom...

So I’m kind of an Elvis fan.  It’s a long story, but I used to be a back-up dancer for an Elvis Impersonator Tribute Artist.
I bought this garbage can when we were in Memphis in 2002 for Elvis week.  And I’ve been using it in my bathroom ever since.  It was kind of cool then, because I was a college student, and had blue striped bedding.

But now, not so cool.  In fact, pretty gross.

The inside had rusted, so I sprayed it with rusty metal primer.  Then painted the whole shebang, inside and outside, black.

I wanted it to look like old enamelware, so I rubbed some candle wax in a few places before spraying it white, hoping that the white wouldn’t stick to the candle wax, and some of the black would show through.  WRONG!  Oh well, I still think it’s 100x better than before!

Thank you, thank you very much.
