Breadbox Makeover

My breadbox was too contemporary looking for me so I decided to prim it up a bit. This is the end result. The color is darker than it shows on the picture.

This is how the breadbox looked before. I beat it up a bit and stained it with Minwax Early American. I wasn't crazy about that look, so I decided to go ahead and paint it. I started with a barn red first and then wiped on some black paint. I like it better than the stained look and will keep it this way for now.

A package arrived today with this lovely enamelware bowl and goats milk soap. It looks lovely in my bathroom that I just redid.

The soap is pumpkin apple butter scent and it smells so wonderful! I also got a nice prim looking bottle of her goats milk lotion and after one use my hands feel quite soft and supple. I bought them from Nellie's Acres. I absolutely love her candles and her scents are just heavenly. I highly recommend her.

  2. Great job on the breadbox, Suzanne.

    I have one of those exact same enamelware soap dishes in my bathroom as well filled with all kinds of hand made soaps. Don't you love it?

  3. The breadbox came out great! I want a soap dish like that, I hope she sells them.

  5. Not sure if I like the soap or the soap bowl better, so it's good that they are together. Really cute.
