Step 1: Star Wars Bins From Old LG Storage Bins

This instructable will show you how to turn used LG storage bins into awesome Star Wars themed utility bins.

Take apart the bin.

Clean thoroughly use an alcohol astringent.

Paint the drawer front with your base color I used a creme colored aerosol for the storm trooper and empire logos.

While the drawer front is drying, go ahead a spray the bin and handle with the durable truck bed liner aerosol. This aerosol can run real easy, use short bursts to control this.

When the drawer front is dry carefully, apply the decal stencils. I ordered mine from the people at https://www.facebook.com/YakimaCoolNerdThings/

Once stencils are in place spray drawers front with truck bed liner aerosol.

DO NOT LET THE PAINT DRY BEFORE REMOVING STENCILS! It will be permanently attached.

After all your paint is dry, reassemble and enjoy your new utility bin.

    Cool. I'm looking for a good and inexpensive way to store and transport my stormtrooper armor. I'm a soon-to-be member (Hopefully) of the Dune Sea Patrol of The 501st Garrison.
