Sugar & Coffee to Beautiful Vase

I saw these canister's in Goodwill and grabbed them right up.  I had already bought some really fresh looking flowers at Micheal's and was looking for just the right vase, and these were the right one's, with a little work.  Sorry about the dark picture's.

I washed them really good and then primed them.  that was all the prep I had to do, (no sanding, yeah)
 I chose to use Valspar black and cream spray paint.  I sprayed them twice  to get a really good, even coat.  Then I went down to our local craft store and bought three decals.  I put the two  together and........TAAADAAA.

As you can see they aren't exactly on my fire place mantle (but they could be), but they're on a more important mantle, the back ot the toilet!!!  You know when I walk in the bathroom and see them with that beautiful green flower in them, well I just smile.


  1. Happy Memorial Day! Oh, I love this and what a great idea! Wish I could find canisters this pretty.
    Be a sweetie,
