~DIY French Canisters~

The other day I made these:
 They started out looking like these:
They set me back a whole $2.19 at the Goodwill.
 A little paint, a little distressing.....
 and I think they look pretty close to the ones in the photo below
that inspired this whole project.
{No, I still haven't made up my mind about painting my table}
Coffee, tea, and sugar!

So stinkin' cute!!! They really do look just like the ones in your inspiration photo! I love that they were made w/ canisters from the thrift store. I see those all the time and they are so cheap. I may have to dream up some custom canisters of my own!

I have some of these containers that my mom gave me. I was going to paint them all white, but ran out of spray paint. I really like how you painted the lids black. Very cool.

They remind me of ones my mom had growing up, I love that they look a bit vintage, but simple and classic.

Sarah said...

Those are great! How did you go about making them exactly?

Julianne said...

Without an accent that would mean sugar, but with an accent sucré means "sweet." Sugar in French is sucre. They look lovely though!

Tracey said...

Love this! I've been searching ebay for something similar. I like your DIY version better than anything I've found! Much friendlier to the pocket book, too! =)

cathy said...

Linda said...

What a great transformation!
They look so much like the ones in the picture.

Mystica said...

Absolutely beautiful.

Mary Ann Pickett said...

Excellent. Looks like you found them at a flea market in France!

Visually you made a splendid job! Grammatically, sugar in french is "sucre", while "sucré" means sweetened or sugared. I still like your makeover though :)

What kind of paint did you use? Where did you get the stencils? Did you seal the paint with anything? The picture is great but would really like to have more information DIY...did you have to prime them? You know, a tutorial would be great.
