These are so nice. I am like your husband when it comes to containers like that, just cannot bear to see them thrown away. You painting is so clean and the fabric really finishes them off nicely. You would never know they were a recon.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

That is so cool! I may try to make those. When my family helps put up dishes (not that I am complaining about the help  Cheesy), I spend lots of time afterward trying to find my baking stuff. So this would be perfect.

Thank you all so much!

I guess I need to take some time and read up about the swaps and challenges going on here? I'm not sure what they all are.

That's brilliant! I'm using a (clean) flowerpot for all of my utensils and it gets a little snug in there sometimes. I'll have to think about how to utilize this idea!

these are beautiful, and a great idea! we have a lot of cooking stuff too, but i'm not sure we'd have enough for three separate containers. you've made me want to hoard even MORE stuff so i can make these! Smiley

I hate to think that these would have ended up in a landfill, especially after seeing how awesome you made them!  You did an amazing job with them - who would have thought something so 'junky' could have ended up so lovely!
