Inexpensive Kitchen Glass Canisters

  Perfect Kitchen Canister

I have received several questions about the glass canisters in my kitchen.  When I was originally planning my mini kitchen makeover, I had it in my head that I HAD to have class canisters similar to the ones I saw on Ella Claire: A Creative Blog.

Aren’t those canisters amazing?!


I loved the large size of the canisters in Ella Claire’s kitchen, but I envisioned only three of them in my kitchen.  Also, I’m really obsessed with gold right now, so I wanted gold lids.  I found my glass canisters on Amazon, and I spray painted the lids with gold spray paint.  Here are the affiliate links for the *canister(s) and the spray paint:

*I went with the 2 gallon size.

Gold Canisters

I love the large size and the simplicity of the canisters, and the gold painted lids were the finishing touch!

I’m on a search for pretty gold or wooden scoops for them.  If anyone finds a good source, please let me know!

I have some kitchen updates coming your way!  I recently won hardware for my kitchen through a contest sponsored by Hickory Hardware.   I’m excited to be sharing my hardware makeover with you very soon.  Also, the cabinet doors went back up.  However, this time they have glass.  No more dust but I still have that open look I love!

  1. I bought the anchor hocking glass canisters, but the 1.5 gallon was way too big for my counter tops. I love them though. What other size do you suggest for sugar/flour? I had to buy off line because we live in a super small town.

  2. Is your spray paint food safe? I want to color my canister lids as well and I have not been able to find food safe spray paint. Love the look of your canisters.

  3. Hi! I have no idea why, but I am not getting any links to the jars or the paint. Don’t need the jars but I’m curious to the paint. It’s not the bright bright gold and I like that. Would you mind giving me the link, please? Thank you!
