Welcome to Makeover Monday: This great set of vintage canisters got a makeover this past week. It all started with a matte white coat of spray paint to cover their funky 50's pattern. Next I printed off some reversed antique French labels from Karen at Graphics Fairy's amazing collection. Next, using Modpodge I attached the labels print side down, to the canisters, went to book club, then came home and rubbed off most of the paper, and voila' Cool, shabby canisters!
Its really too bad I don't do recipes here on my blog, because my friend Ann who hosted bookclub had this amazing dessert, it was sort of like a cheese Danish ... yummy ....
Anyway, here are a few shots of some other goodies in my
vintage cupboard. There is a fun 40's cardboard egg cartoon, a basket of eggs, and my favorite, a late Victorian (1890's) ceramic bowl with chicks hatching from their eggs on the lid. Such a fun piece.
I am having a lot of fun with this reverse decoupage method, its a little tricky and you probably noticed that some of the label gets rubbed away completely so that bits are missing, but I actually think the process sort of 'ages' the items I use it on .... more to come I'm sure. Thanks for stopping by!
