Altered bean can

I altered the empty bean can as stationery caddy. I adhered the can with a self-adhesive waterproof seal wrapping patterned plastic. Painted the top part of the can with Pelikan Plaka yellow paint. I did not add any embellishment because this can is for my 2 1/2 years old son to put all his colour pencils in.  Actually, I was painting another empty can with gesso and left it on my table. He saw the empty can and he took out all his colour pencils from the pencil box and put them into the can, giggling and playing by himself.
