A Bread Box and A Table

I will start with the bread box...

 Below is how I purchased it at a garage sale...

Simple redo, just cleaning and a bit of Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint later.
Now on to the table. This was a kit from our local discount store that was still in its original box when I purchased it at a garage sale...they had never opened it and it was many years old.

I glued and screwed it together but also accented it with some lighter blue stripes just for fun.

I am not keeping either, but they were fun, easy projects.

  1. I LOVE what you did with the bread box. My mom has the exact same one so it looks like I'll be stealing it and redoing it very soon:) The table turned out beautifully too!


  2. I like the bread box and also the little touch you put on the table.

  3. What a great Idea!! I love the Bread box!
    I would love for you to come link up to my Paint Party going on now!!

    Hope to see you soon,
    start at home

  4. I love the painted bread box! It makes me want to paint the one in my kitchen. Found you on Feathered Nest Friday.

  5. Loved seeing your breadbox and table, Tracy. I was especially interested in the breadbox as I have one much like yours. Have never been sure about painting it. I don't use it anymore, just have it in my craft area waiting for a re-do (smile). TFS. I am a follower of your blog and enjoy return visits. I invite you to join me as well on my blog at http://atastefultouch.blogspot.com
    Hugs, Gayle.

  6. Love the stripes on the table. so cute! The bread box is amazing too.

  7. I love bread boxes! I never find them :( I had to come see, from Crafts a la Mode!

  8. Gotta love fun and easy! I'm loving the bread box, although the table is really cute with the stripes too. Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!


  9. I would love for you to share and link up at my weekly TGIF Link Party if you haven't already this week. Your favorite posts, most popular, recent or new! The party is open every Thursday night and closes Wednesday's at midnight. Followed by (Not SO) Wordless Wednesday! http://apeekintomyparadise.blogspot.com/.
    I would be honored if you join us and follow to stay connected Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs, Cathy

  10. Found you thru Furniture Friday, haven't ever come across your blog before but glad I did. That's a pretty old bread box, don't see them unless passed on to somebody or at a thrift store/ yard sale. I had a metal one that I used to make a planter in KY. Now why did I do that, wish I still had it. What a difference the white paint made to the look of it. Still pretty useable. Love color on the table with the stripes, like that you put stripes different directions on top and shelf. I'd have a hard time selling both, but I'm like that.


  11. Thanks so much for sharing at A Peek Into My Paradise TGIF Link Party! I can't wait to see what you link up next week! I hope to see you at the (Not SO) Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop! http://apeekintomyparadise.blogspot.com/
    Have a terrific week!
    Hugs, Cathy
