71  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Edward Gorey canisters on: July 30, 2007 10:12:05 PM
My old canisters were starting to look a bit shabby, so I decided it was time for some new ones.  The trickiest bit was finding plain white canisters.  I stenciled parts with freezer paper and painted the rest.

The full set


Flour and sugar, Gashlycrumb Tinies and some fur coat guys

72  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Anne Taintor kitchen canisters on: March 15, 2006 05:20:45 PM
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. 

Behold


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.
