use decoupage to spruce up a plain old tin
My dad had bought a watch packaged in a metal tin several years ago. I recently found the tin and decided it would be a good place to stow my knick-knacks. Started by painting over the tin with a brown acrylic paint. While the paint was drying i printed some old fashion plates (google image search: antique images). I used mod podge to paste the print-outs on to the tin and finished by coating the tin in a coat of mod podge.
