bread box... from beast to beauty

Hi everyone
just a quick blog today...
I found a bread box a while back at a garage sale its was.. ready for it?.. are you sitting down? grab your cup of coffee or tea and put it down on the desk...... 20 cents!!!!! yup you got that one right 20 cents.. so I grabbed it and ran.. after a good clean with hot soapy water then tea tree oil spray I made.. it feels a little more loved and MUCH less dirty
I also found a small door knob at the same sale... in the free bin! how could you give away a gem like that? I couldnt but anyway everyone is different
so here are a few pics of before and after.. well sort of i got into the painting faster than i thought to photograph it hahaha

   anyway I think its really sweet and it does the job..
when i rolled the door up and down (it was stuck so i rubbed those bits of soap you have no use for on the tracks and YIPPEE it rolls) i got a bit of an aged effect... sometimes the best things come from accidents... don't you find?

oh we needed it cause our puddy tat was chewing on the bread ... didnt think cats liked bread but hey!
hope your having a great week
I have lots of things going at the moment so stay tuned! including a beroom chair....
love to you all

  2. Sooo adorable after your special touch!!! I looove the knob too, it's our good fortune finding those little treasures out there, that people fall out of love with! Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  3. Vicki darling you did a fantastic with the bread box. As for your blog, the header and the background is soooo gorgeous, I love it. If you ever want to get rid of the top left side ad for free background, if you ever want to get rid of it let me know. (I know it is not nice to do it, but looks better, trust me)

    Darling thanks for the best wishes, my migraine is 50% gone, half gone and half to go. Wishing you a joyous and blessed Easter.

    Love & Hugs
