Quickie French Canisters

by - July 14, 2013

After looking at a bunch of Where Bloggers Create posts, I decided it was time for me to get more organized.  My craft room doubles as an office, so I am a little limited to the spacing and shelves I can use.  I try to use as many baskets, canisters and penny jars as I can.

I took this Williams Sonoma sugar cookie tin out yesterday and gave it a couple of coats of white spray paint.  The cookie mix was long gone and it was the perfect size for an instant transformation.
I added this great French label from the Graphics Fairy to the front.  I printed it off on label paper so all I had to do was peel and stick.  And look what it holds perfectly...
...A whole lotta seam binding!
I've used this jar before for a Marie Antoinette makeover.  Since the original image kept peeling off, I scrapped it for this great French post card image (also from the Graphics Fairy). 
Since I'm not sure what I'm adding to it, I left the label blank.  I'll probably end up hand-stamping the word of whatever I fill it with.

I'm slowly on the road to organization.  Maybe by next year's Where Bloggers Create party, I'll be ready!
