Mother's day gift - Bread Box Revamp

Shhhhhhh----
Don't tell my mom that her Mother's day present came from the DI!!


Ok- So its not a huge secret because I already told her to make a place on her counter for a bread box and she is very well aware of the fact that I can hardly force myself to pay retail for ANYTHING.
Buuuut- She is a wonderful mom and puts up with my strange personality and anticts so its all good.

 

It wasn't as easy to pull appart as I had thought or hoped. That puppy was nailed together GooooOOOooood.
I finally got it and started sanding off all the varnish.

 

Spray paint, Distress, and Laquer. . . . .

 

Finished!!

 

 


 


 

Its going to look fabulous on her black granite counter top!!!
I am going to stick a big ol' fat loaf of bread from Great Harvest in there too. That should count for something and counteract the DI present, shouldn't it?!?

I absolutely love my new bread box! It looks great in my kitchen, and I dont even care if it came from the DI. I love it! Thanks to my wonderful daughter who is talented and beautiful. Happy Mother's day to you too. :)
