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

Tea and TBA, Epiplectic Bicycle and Doubtful Guest
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. 


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.
