Pantry Makeover

Friday, February 23, 2007

Dharma Initiative RationsThe folks at Insanely Great Tees have won a special place in my heart for their attention to obsessive detail, and even better, sharing their spoils with us via pdfs on their site.

I’m not a fan of Lost (don’t have the soap opera gene mutation or cable), but love the restyle aspect of this pantry make over.

Similar to Rachel Ray’s fake food labels (her crew sticks them on her products used in the show to hide the brand), it also reminds me of the great Penn and Teller’s How to Play with Your Food . My brothers got their hands on the book’s sticker page (if you buy a used copy of this book- check to see how many of the stickers remain!), and re-tooled my groceries when I moved into my first apartment. It’s been over ten years, but I still expect to see “this product made entirely of sausage by products” on any bright yellow Cheerios box.

With enough time and obsessive energy we too could restyle our pantries, giving them a wardrobe makeover. Or subvert this energy into an April Fool’s project…

One Year Ago:

Cheeseburger Bird
Late one star-lit night, a friend told us a tale. We were gathered around a roaring fire, in the company of consumed beers, under a clear sky, and clutching our sides from laughing too much.

“Tell us again!” we begged, “what kind of bird?”
“It’s a cheeseburger bird!” he insisted

I love this! I can totally see doing this for April Fools. What a great idea.

I couldn’t wait! There’s creepy Dharma beer waiting for my boy’s return. And my fridge looks great!

LOL!!! I love the labels.. It’s giving me ideas… I’ve altered cleaning products labels which told Old Dutch into Old B*tch. Hilarity all around.. Those were the college days… :)
