Blue Vintage Kitchen Cannisters
Sorry for my lack of posting lately. If you look at my profile you'll see I'm an accountant. This is the time of year that I walk around with constant black circles under my eyes. I work 3 days a week in the office and the rest of the hours I get in at home while home schooling my son. I will be leaving accounting after April 15th sometime, since my son has Aspergers and needs me 24/7.
All my projects are in slow mode until after April 15th and its killing me. I keep seeing the cutest things lately on other blogs.
Well I posted my kitchen on HGTV's rate my space and boy did I get feedback. From putting away my daily appliances, to decorating the top of my cabinets, to adding a pop of color. Their was some disagreement on the use of red, one commenter said I should and one said steer clear. My walls are grey-blue so that is the direction I am going in for my pops of color along with white.
This morning we stopped at the antique mall looking for apothecary jars and I found the cutest cannisters. They are just so me and go so well in my kitchen.
Here was my attempt to recreate these cannisters. It didn't work out so well. I will fix and finish them just not now. They are hanging out in the unfinshed project graveyard in my garage.
Here's what they looked like to begin with.
