Hello! I like it so much. Such interesting ideas, I have a lot of cans in my garage that my father does not allow to throw out. He loves to collect old things, does not like to throw them out and thinks that a hundred cans will definitely come in handy for him soon. I will show him your article, I think he will be glad that they can be applied somewhere. Thanks for sharing, great ideas!
