Canisters


Have you ever gone to the salon with a picture torn out of a magazine?  You're eager for a completely new haircut and transformation!  After it's all done you come home and look at yourself in the mirror.  It's the same cut but you don't look the same as the model so you're a bit frustrated. Somehow in your mind this one cut was going to transform you entirely.  That's the way I felt with these canisters.


Back in February I posted pictures of this house and it's kitchen.  In the kitchen were these amazing canisters.  I really wanted a set.  I lucked out when one of our neighbors was having a garage sale and she gave me this set of Garner Ware canisters.(we have really nice neighbors) I came home, put them in the kitchen and got sad.  Somehow I hoped this set of canisters would transform our kitchen into the one from my previous post.  If only the canisters could get rid of our awful counter top and replace it with Caesarstone in white or apple martini. If only the canisters could get me cool backsplash tile and minimal cabinet doors with great hardware.  If only I could keep my counter top clear and clean.  I'm constantly cooking so it's a big struggle. I'm so not Mid Century minimal in that respect. 


Well, if you're looking for a set of these canisters to transform your kitchen, I just saw a set on etsy.


(Btw, don't ever get granite with this many color variations for a kitchen. You can't see anything on it; coffee beans, pasta sauce, crumbs, etc.  Horrible for cleaning up.)

good tip on the granite! cute canisters too. we bought a house last fall and it has white corian countertops about 10-12 years old. A change is in the future. Sometime. But I do have to admit that the white corian makes it way easy to see when the counters need to be sponged.
