Thrifty Thursday: Bread Box

This week was not very fruitful for me in the way of decor/furniture.  Although I did score 2 awesome Hurley swimsuits-one for each of my big boys!  Nice!

The one find I was totally excited about was my new bread box! 
(Here he is AFTER, of course!)

Last week I was SO inspired by Chelsea's bread box at Making Home Base, that I was pretty much in shock when I saw them....yes them!  There were 2 boxes.  The only difference was the painting on the front.

I went with the cows!

I painted him with a frenchy blue acrylic paint, then sanded and stained her with 
Martha Stewart's Metallic Glaze
The letters were added with my trusty transfer method found 
I switched out the wooden knob for a cute one from Hobby Lobby!

He is very happy in his new home on my kitchen counter!
 Thrift Store box: $4.00
Hobby Lobby knob: $2.00
Total cost for this guy: $6.00!!!!! Oh yeah!


  1. Cute project. I see these boxes often at Goodwill - now I have an idea of what to do with them. Sally
