Hand Painted Gift Canisters

I've been toying around with the idea of painted canisters to corral all of my desktop paraphernalia and over the weekend, set out to up-cycle some used tin cans with a simple white paint job. As these things go, my fixation with black, white and gold got the better of me and I ended up with some abstract art instead. But as quickly as I finished, I could not help but envision these holding freshly baked cookies or salted caramels for gift giving. Heck, they are even fitting for a bottle of perfume or a small gift that might otherwise be relegated to a stocking stuffer. 

So I ask, why not have them both ways?

LOVE this! It looks like abstract art for your paintbrushes. :)

Amazing! I can't get enough gold black and white!

OMG they look sooooo cute as gift wrap! Both ways are great actually, but I would love to receive one, it's like two gifts in one!

Pretty! I'm loving them. I wish there was a way to get rid of the ever obnoxious tin-can ripples, though... ever the killer of all things lux. lol

Much Love,
