{ Bread Box Re-do}

It's that time again ..the weekend :)! I've got a lot going on in the Blog world today,from new post to re-do projects & everything in between..yikes! Okay, everyone brace yourself ..here is the infamous Bread Box reveal..yes, the dang bread box I looked everywhere for!! Well, my lovely parents came across one for under $5..&picked it up { 1970's flashback} but had so much potential! Here is the re-do !!

{ Before }


The size is approx. 12x9 in.

Although I wasn't born yet, I believe the 1970's are missing a treasure ..screaming tangerine orange & all :) !

First coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

{ After }

I used the the famous Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Old Ochre, & then used the brand Americana Decor creme wax { Michaels 2 for $20} in 'deep brown'! I love the vintage aged look the creme wax gave.

The letters are not painted on..they're actually ' Mambi Sticks' in a matte finish from Michaels for $6!


The little silver trays are just for staging/ quick use.

Storing all kinds of goodies for the kitchen...love!!

I hope you all enjoyed this simple & easy little redo on an old 1970's bread box..now lets hope my dear husband doesn't waste any more bread hehe!
