Bread Box Makeover

I was itching to paint something white and Goodwill had this breadbox for $3. Jackpot! Honestly, I have never wanted a breadbox. But now its just too cute. We keep our bread in the fridge, so I think I may use this for potatos. I might even put in a divider and put potatos and onions.

The bread sign was upside down. I lightly sanded the box and primed it with Zinsers. I tried spraying it, but that is not my specialty. I must have sprayed too close because I got runs and clumps. I sanded the clumps and just touched up with a brush.

I lightly distressed it and left all the nail holes. I like it this way. I did coat it with spray clear coat. I still need to restaple the bottom but for now I will let the paint cure a few days.

isn't it amazing what paint can do - all new & fresh. So pretty!

That totally cracks me up that the sign was backward! It looks lovely, I especially love it next to your bead board back splash! Hope you are loving it!
