I found this set of pretty beat up kitchen canisters at the thrift store. They were on sale for 50% off, so $2.50 for the set of 4! I thought they were very Anthropologie (not that I’ve bought anything from there in my life, *sigh*).
I wanted to use them as accessories on top of my cabinets, but they are almost the same color as the cabinets. I wanted to give them a bit of a pop. So, naturally, I set up a sweat shop in my garage to give them a few coats of Rustoleum’s Heirloom White.
Please ignore the IKEA mirror makeover, since that will be saved for another post ;-). Also ignore the edger that the mister shoved in MY area and the bike with two flat tires.
I love the way they turned out. So vintage in my opinion, and if I ever run out of cupboard space I could certainly store the flour, sugar, coffee, and tea in these beauties. I’m still debating whether or not to take some sandpaper to the engraved parts to make the words and flourishes stand out more. Thoughts???
