Country decor, according to HGTV’s article Country Style 101, has soft, muted colors showing the wear of time. The contemporary country look may feature brighter color palettes with accents of red, black or pure white to set off the design. We like old country coffee canisters from the yesteryears, made in the 50s and 60s. Those rare finds occasionally show up in neighborhoods garage sales.
These days you’d be hard-pressed to find a selection of country coffee canisters in stores or thrift shops.
We looked online and found that good ole’ Amazon has quite a selection of country coffee canisters. Here are 7 that you can grab and get shipped to your doorsteps:
