...and a Bread Box to match

I found this amazing breadbox at the thrift store for $1 and at the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  I figured with a little clean up and a paint job, I could sell it.  Maybe make a few bucks on it.  Then once I got the turquoise canisters in my kitchen, I decided I had to have a turquoise breadbox.  HAD TO HAVE ONE!!!

Sadly (or funnily...if that's really a word), I had several thrift store breadboxes to choose from.  (Once I got to four, I decided it was time to stop buying them.)  Anyway, I chose this one because I really liked the shape around the top and the base.

Once again the turquoise paint has worked it's magic and transformed this old, forgotten breadbox into a beautiful piece of counter top decor.  I used the same Cricut cartridge to cut out the letters for "Bread" as I used for the numbers on my canisters.

I really, really love how it turned out!!  And I just can't stop addition will be a turquoise paper towel stand, a turquoise dish rack and ultimately I will be repainting my Kitchen Aide mixer to either turquoise with white accents or white with turquoise accents. 

...more on that later.
