Hello amazing friends! I have a pretty little makeover for ya’ll today!
I spied this breadbox for $4 at the thrift store last week:
I see breadboxes all the time at thrift stores, but I thought this one was so pretty! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use.
I haven’t done anything with a Frenchy feel in a while, but that is exactly what I pictured for this beauty!
Such a pretty home for your bread, don’t you think?
For this box I used my favorite white: Behr’s Bit of Sugar, made into DIY chalk paint. (Recipe HERE.)
To add the graphics to the top, I went old school. I found this image online. It led to an account on Pinterest, but stopped there so I don’t know the original source.
I tweaked the original just a bit and printed it in the reverse:
Then I positioned it facedown where I wanted it and ran a pencil across the back to transfer the image:
And here it is ready to paint in:
There was a tiny line of words below PATISSERIE that I ended up leaving out. They wouldn’t have been the easiest to paint in.
I replaced the brass knob with this pretty glass one:
I also removed the brass plate on the front, spray painted it black, then painted it in the Bit of Sugar as well. A light sanding shows some of the details.
I tried it out on my counter and me likey!
Kinda makes me want to keep it. 🙂
I’m hoping to share some of our Halloween decor with ya’ll on Tuesday and then I’ll be back on Thursday with my Furniture Fixer Upper Crew sharing a brand new furniture redo!
Enjoy your weekend!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
