~ Breadbox Makeover ~

This weekend was a lazy weekend. I mean lazy as in no makeup, sweats wearing, reading on the couch (and bed) watching football - lazy weekend. Somehow in all that laziness I managed to squeeze in a little spray painting (I can't help myself, I'm addicted). There in the laundry room sat an old breadbox that I have but haven't used in a long time because well it's just on longer my "style". With a little revamping and it is now definitely my style! I am giddy over how simple this project was and even more so about how it turned out.
The before (I started spraying before I realized I didn't take a picture)
Sprayed an Antique White
with Antique Glaze
I hand painted the word "Bread" on the front (don't zoom in to close or you will see my shakey handy work) and sanded the edges a bit for instant aging, added a black grosgrain ribbon and VIOLA!
Total Cuteness..

This project was from Jan 2010. I just thought I would share it again since back then I was a new blogger and I had no idea about the whole "linking up on link parties". It's now a whole new world :-)

I'm linking this up on:

Love it, and LOVE that you handpainted 'bread'. I know it's tedious, so I always admire when someone handletters.

Please join us this weekend at Passion for Paint and link up your project! Links open Friday night @ 6 pm PST.
