Goodwill Transformation: Kitchen Canisters

Pin It
Oh how I love thrifting.  I found some nifty canisters on my recent trip. $3 for both.  Nice, right?
They had a cute shape, but uggggly color!




I gave it a quick coat of primer. 
(by the way, my spray paint gun is my new BEST friend!!)



I decided I liked the white, so I gave it a few good coats of white spray paint.




Added a vinyl # 1 and 2
(using my handy cricut machine!)



Hot glued on a little twine.....



Voila, new canisters that are cuuuute!

  25. Angela,
    I got it at Lowe's. It is was hanging up near the spray paint section. It was under $3 I think. I love it!

  26. How well is the spray paint holding up on those canisters? Any chipping? I've wanted to spray paint ceramic but I'm not sure how well it will work. I just don't want it to chip off from being used.

  27. That is so great! It is nice to know more about that chalkboard spray paint. I am going to get my first can today for a few projects I have in the works. Can't wait to see more projects!
