I've been looking for kitchen canister forever and I really wanted something kind of quirky. I couldn't find anything that suited and that was within my price range. Everything was either ugly or wasn't airtight or was too small or whatever. I wanted big ole' canisters because I bake a lot and because having a canister on the counter and half a sack of flour in the cupboard is hardly space-efficient.
Originally, I was thinking of putting pinup girls on them, but then I decided that Anne Taintor's whole take on femininity worked perfectly for the kitchen. Anyway, I just printed up the images, gave them a healthy coating of Mod Podge, and glued them on to some Click-Clacks. I used Liquid Nails Perfect Glue #1, which stuck really well but ended up rippling the images. Oh well.
The pictures say "Maybe I want
to look cheap," "Make your own damn dinner," "Let's ignore our mothers' well-meant advice," and "She had not yet decided whether to use her power for good or evil" and the canisters hold tea, flour, sugar, and pasta, respectively.
