New Bread Box…
It’s been quite along time since I purchased this little bread box! Not sure what it was originally intended to be used for, but I saw it as the perfect place for our family to store bread on our counter top.
As you can see that we always have an overflow of bread sacks that don’t fit in our current Bread Box and it drives me crazy!
Last week, I finally bought some Annie Sloan Paint (old white) and painted the blue box. It took a few coats until I got it right! The old blue paint bled through the white for almost three coats.
While drying the paint in the sunshine I sprayed the inside with a combination of half vinegar and water to make sure the inside was cleaned thoroughly!
After drying completely, I sanded very little and used both dark and clear wax to distress the box and lid until I felt it was just right look I wanted for my kitchen!
I was so excited that all of the bread fit inside! There is even a room for a few cracker boxes if I wanted to add too! So what do you think?
Its been awhile since I had set out to complete a project! this one felt so good to accomplish! Thanks for coming by and taking a peek ~ I love giving old pieces new life! xoxo, tracie
I never seem to have much luck with waxes on painted wood. I have the clear (light) Annie Sloan wax and it does not change my pieces in any way at all. Advice?
