I was so excited to get this! The first thing I really noticed was that the edges of the design have an obvious seam where it doesn't line up completely. Not a huge deal since I can just turn that to the back. Q-tips (recommended usage for canister) don't quite fit without a lot of struggle, and even then the lid didn't seem stable. Maybe I just use monster sized q-tips? Regardless, it's pretty, matches my decor perfectly, and I'll find a good use for it! Good price for the item.
