I receive questions all the time about my inexpensive glass canisters in our kitchen.
Years ago I decided I HAD to have class canisters similar to the ones I saw on Ella Claire: A Creative Blog. I think I’m drawn to the repetition and simplicity of these canisters.
Aren’t those canisters amazing?! They become art with all the colorful textures and patterns.
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.
The DIY glass canisters have been around for years now. They were in my old kitchen…
…and they made the cut and are in my DIY newly renovated kitchen.
I love the large size and the simplicity of the inexpensive glass 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!

They look fantastic!
Thanks so much, Stacey!
I’m in love. Thank you!
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.
Hi Misty! I’m so sorry the canisters were too big for your kitchen. I would guess the 1 gallon size would be plenty big – if you think they would be small enough for your space?
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.
Hi Ewa. No it’s not, but I only spray painted the outside of the lids. Unfortunately I don’t know of any spray paint that is food safe.
Love them! You have such great style and taste!
Thank you Gretchen!
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!
It’s actually Rustoleum’s metallic gold paint. I use it all the time, and I love the finish!
Do the kids fit tight or are they loose?
Mine seal – they’re not loose at all, but they’re also not hard to remove.
I’m having trouble keeping my brown sugar from turning into cement.
would these jars/lids keep enough moisture out to prevent that?
Unfortunately I haven’t tried brown sugar in the jars, so I hate to encourage you one way or another. I’m sorry I’m not any help!
What are the color of the kitchen cabinets. They are lovely with the canisters and gold accents.
The came finished in this color, but I had them color-matched: https://sincerelysarad.com/kitchen-cabinet-color/
How many kgs fit in 2 G jar?
I’m so sorry – I have no idea!
