Bread Box Makeover – using milk paint, metallic paint, and a union jack.
I know there is a before pic somewhere – but search as I might, I cannot find it.
If you look close you can see the faint outline of the original picture on the lid of this bread box. It was a cute, country piece in its day, but it was time for an update.
This breadbox was my Mom’s and we used it in her kitchen for years. She decided she wanted it painted so I brought it home with me. But I didn’t get to it right away and then my Mom’s kitchen got a complete makeover and she decided she didn’t have room in her kitchen for the breadbox.
I decided to give it a makeover anyway, and sell it at the shop.
First I painted the box with Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint in Kitchen Scale.
After the Kitchen Scale I added a layer of Grain Sack.
And taped off a Union Jack shape.
The counter space in my kitchen is limited but I like the idea of the bread having a place all its own so I figured out a way to make it work. No more bread sacks out in the way – now they can be tucked away in their own little home and out-of-sight.
