Hello...metal, pressed glass or ceramic?
could you possibly post a photograph to better see the current situation? Having a visual might be best guidance to a help find the best suggestions or potential solution to offer. Its best know what you are dealing with before offering broad suggestions.
Hi! I use old ones for storage in my craft room. They are also great for keeping things organized in almost any room.
Paint them and make them more modern.
Can you share a photo? That will help with ideas!
Depending on size, style, etc. they could be used in a few spots in bookcases as bookends, or decoratively here and there on the shelves. They could corral such items as rubber bands, small office supplies and be used in an office. I'm currently using a couple of mine for big flower arrangements on my countertop to block the kitchen faucet from view as its the first thing a person sees when they come in the front door. Also could work well in a bathroom area to store small items such as cotton balls, hair scrunchies, etc.
Hi Grady: You could put jars in them, to protect the canisters themselves, put water in the jars and then put fresh flowers in them and display them on a windowsill or table. Or, you could fill the jars with dirt and plant some flowers in them. If they are antique, I wouldn't change them with paint or destroy their condition at all. So many old things are being ruined by paint and ripping them apart. They are beautiful as they are. But, that's just my opinion. If you are going to display them outside, you could spray a lacquer on them to keep them from rusting. Good luck
Lots of ideas
Hi Grady - Not sure of the size. Here is a super cute idea. Hope this helps with some inspiration. Hugs, Holly
Can you actually use them as canisters on your counter? If you could clean them up, sounds like they could be great to just use and have on display.
You can use them to hold craft items.
You could take the tops off and use a s vases paint them a diffrent color use under the kitchen sink for small items
You could paint them with craft paint, or cover them with pretty paper or fabric. I would use them for craft storage.
Grady: You could use them for screws, bolts and etc in your garage.
Put plants in them or use them to store craft supplies, like paint brushes.
Display them, put a plant in them, use them to store items in.
Hi Grady, hope this helps you out,
Use them to store kids toys.
Great for keeping sewing items in these.
They would look cute with an assortment of kitchen utensils (big spoon, etc).
A natural for holding hand shovels in the green house.
Could be used in a child's play kitchen.
Craft storage, Jewellery, Depends on what they look like or what the originaluse was.
