Bread Box attempt #2 - How to Paint a Breadbox

Ever since I posted about this Bread Box mess up,  I have always wanted to do another one – just to show you guys I really can pull it off! 

When I saw this at the thrift store for 2 bucks I couldn’t resist.   Unlike my previous attempt I didn’t have to use power tools so I knew things would be OK.  (I tried to turn my other bread box into a phone charger station with holes in the back, but I almost took out a finger instead.  OPPS!)

Here is the lovely BEFORE shot:

And I was going to use it to cover up THIS spot:

Here is the AFTER pictures:

It worked – now my little coffee station looks like this:

The rundown was:

1.) spray paint white – at least 3 coats
2.) sand edges to distress
3.) add a little brown glaze to age it even more.
If you want more in depth details see this post.

What fun! I hope I’ve inspired a few folks out there.  Just go for it!
