Stationery Sunday: When life gives you baked beans…


When you work and study, it doesn’t have to be Sunday for a Stationery Sunday anymore. 

I’ve been really into upsizing things I’d normally just chuck into the recycle bin lately.

This was a tin of baked beans with the branding stripped off of it, and now it’s my pen pot. Hooray!

  • It took all of about three coats of acrylic paint (bought from The Works for literally just £1).
  • I covered the sharp edges of the tin using washi tape after painting it.
  • The base of the tin is sitting on a circular base cut out of a cork sheet, just to give the tin more stability when standing.
