Utensils Tin (altered Milo Tin)

I have a hideous utensils draw, so messy and impossible to find anything, so I decided to make myself a utensil holder to keep near my stove.

I had this enormous milo tin (something like a 1kg tin I think) and thought it would be ideal, as my utensils have long handles.

I just got the photo of it today, as my camera has been MIA for about a week, and I just found it last night (yay!!). Unfortunately, I splashed tomato sauce onto my tin last night, so the thickers are a little dirty looking in the photo. Oh well, it is meant to be used, and is near my stove, so it was inevitable lol.

Hope you like it.
