I love to use unexpected things for storage, and there are so many things that I see at the thrift stores that can be repurposed in fun and interesting ways.
The traditional ceramic canister set that I had on the kitchen counter had to go. It just wasn't the look that I wanted anymore.
I found four 50 cent vintage coffee pots and a $1 vintage ice bucket in my craft studio thrifted stash.
This 3D stick-on letter sheet that I found at the dollar store had perfect sized letters. I tried to colour them red with a red marker, but it wasn't opaque enough for me... so I grabbed some red apple spray paint and used that.
We love to drink decaf teas and we each have our favourite, so I labelled a pot for John and myself, and then green tea is kept in the third one. We keep caffeinated tea in the cupboard for guests.
The vintage ice bucket makes a perfect cookie jar because it's air tight, and the mini coffee pot makes a sweet sugar container.
So the next time you're looking for some interesting kitchen storage...
...think outside the canister. :)
