Big Ass Coffee Tin. Seriously. It is.

 I bought this monstrosity from Ballards a few years ago.  I knew it was going to be large and I wanted it to be large.  But I had no idea how big it really was until the giant box arrived.  Hmmm...big  and red.

I don't do red.  I have tried really hard to do red.  It's so cheerful in my friend's house, but I just don't feel peaceful with it in my own space.  I painted it creamy yellow with a burnt sienna glaze.  Better than red, but still not blowing my skirt up.

At last I'm finally happy with it.  Old White paint and some glaze did the trick.  I added a vintage image from The Graphic's Fairy.  I know it's not coffee related, but I'm a wordy girl.  Anyway...

I think it's perfect for now...and it holds a big case of Bristot pods for my morning latte.

I have not been paid to endorse these products, they are just our preferred brand.  Although if I was going to get paid to endorse something....
It would be for my beloved Ben and Jerry's CFB.  Chocolate. Fudgy. Brownies. Ice Cream.

Sometimes big ass is good.  ;  )

On an added note-  After reading this post, the previously mentioned friend who loves red had to express her horror at the repainting of the red coffee tin.  Which measures 22" tall for those of you who asked!
