GIT’R’DONE: Kitchen Containers

14 Sep

Yeah, as you can tell I have a thing for kitchens. Vrrr.. it might be my favorite room in the house. Y’know, with all the eating and shoveling things into my face and the what-not. My other interests besides eating include.. organization and 1950’s & 60’s design. HOW ABOUT THAT.

Here are some delightful kitchen containers and canisters that include those exact 3 interests of mine. HOLY BALLS!

Alright, calm down. So being delighted by kitchen canisters, I was very pleased when my boyfriend returned home one day from the St. Vincent thrift store with a $3.00 chrome bread box. It was missing a little knob and was pretty plain, but very clean and neither rusty nor tarnished. Being a fan of labeling your containers – because GOD FORBID YOU THINK A BREAD BOX IS A BABY BOX – I put a vinyl label on it to dress it on up!

Now of course most people don’t have access to a decal cutter, but perhaps this can inspire y’all on making your own labeled canisters out of cheap ass things you find at the thrift store. There are even some amazing plain old Christmas and shipping labels that could work for such a thing. Just don’t get them wet, of course. HUZZAH!
