The Transformation

I have had this bread box for a couple of years.  Although I love the Morning Glories, it has some pretty rough rust spots in places and is a little too shabby for my kitchen.  So I brought out the big guns and went to work.

Drumroll please...

A few coats later, the addition of some strategically placed wear-and-tear spots, some vintage decals and I have exactly the bread box that I had been envisioning.  If you google vintage decals you'll find some really neat sites.

I've got a lot of paint left over.  I'm wondering what else I can paint pink today?  Have a great Thursday!



  1. Love your bread box transformation! I especially love the 'worn' spots. Isn't painting metal things fun? I painted a few things last summer & like you, found myself on the look-out for what else I could paint next! :o) Have fun!
