Re-Purposed Bread Box

This weeks project was super quick and easy.   I've been searching for a bread box for the Lake House for the longest time.  I can't believe how hard it is to find those suckers.  But I finally spotted one at an estate sale a few weeks ago....


I really didn't have to do much to it.  I cleaned it up and applied 2 coats of aqua blue paint.


Stenciled the word grains across the front....


Filled it with bread and set it on the counter at the lake.


Done!!  What did you make this week?

  1. This is a cute makeover! It is always great seeing what paint will do to an object. This bread box went from bland to grand!

  4. Nice job! Very clean looking! I just re-started on the cabinet at our place in Florida, the base coat is done, now time for the fun to begin! Hoping for a vintage, or old Florida feel when I'm done!

  7. What a cool transformation! The heart cut-out is so sweet. Makes me wonder if it wasn't originally given as a wedding gift.

  9. What a beautiful transformation of the bread box! Love how you changed the color and added the stenciling. I am not currently working on any "redo" projects, but I think I've been inspired to find something to "redo" now! :)

  11. I'm so glad you told me about your breadbox, Kim--love it--especially with the stencil. What are the odds that we'd be working on almost the same project at about the same time?! Hope you have a great week :)
