Today's makeover is a set of square hinged lid canisters. I love canisters, they make great storage. In the bathroom for extra TP, shampoos, makeup, brushes, even wash clothes can be tucked out of sight. Their usefulness in a project room are never ending, and of course we all know what to do with them in the kitchen.
This set is not terribly old, I think they held various teas in a shop at one time, as indicated by the labels. I found 12 of them at Treasures Antiques where I work for $1.50 each. Whoa, they were there a week before I saw them and scooped them all up.... guess no one else saw the potential ... or no one else is crazy, one or the other.
It did take a good 4 coats of spray paint to completely cover the dark green. Then I added the crowns gathered from Graphics Fairy, using the reverse modpodge method I favor. They did try my patience, at least the third one did, I had to do the crown four times before I got it right .... Next I sealed them with spray varnish. Sweet crumpled green acetate ribbon and an old rusty key finished them off. Now they are ready for flea.o.logy, I am going to have my booth in my new garden house, how fun is that? Can you believe its just 10 days away? Guess I better get busy!
Thanks for coming along and sharing my crafty side. ;-)
