I love my antique canisters, but as useful as they are they were also creating a small problem. Each day after wiping down the counters they would begin making a rust ring. I found this tray for $3.50 at Goodwill and put it to use protecting my counters.
These canisters were a Christmas gift from my mom. We have a battle going on with unwanted little pests and I chose useful ways to store and protect my food that were also pretty. The one that says 'flour' holds bread, the one that says 'sugar' holds my breakfast bagels, and the other two hold opened graham crackers and cookies.
I use these almost daily so they hold a prominent place in my kitchen next to the fridge...which hint hint...MAY just be changing pretty soon!!
Check out my linky party here! I love visiting each and every one.
