Vintage Bread Box

image2I found an old vintage bread box that was all rusty and wanted to refurbish it and make it usable again.  I first cleaned it up and took the hardware off.  Then I painted it with Sherwin Williams white latex paint (duration) to give it a durable and washable service.  I purchased months ago a really nice stencil that says “The French Bakery” in French.  I was so excited to finally get a chance to use the stencil.

Here is the bread box finished and in “Ginger’s Attic”.  It is nice, clean, and refurbished, ready to go in someone’s home and could be used for it’s original purpose – to store bread products in.  It even has a small vented area in the back of it.IMG_0282
