We’re always dreaming up new ways to use old tin cans. But our little craft projects never end up looking half as good as what Jack Bresnahan has done with his tin cans.

Bresnahan has designed 9 different lids that fit on your standard, previously-used tin can. Each lid turns the tin can into a new and useful object: vase, soap dispenser, desk organizer, sugar dispenser, toothbrush holder, etc.

And, with the labels properly removed and one of Bresnahan’s lids firmly in place, the cans look pretty stunning — sleek, modern, handsome. Somehow, we never imagined describing tin cans in those terms.
