Goodwill Goodie Finish Friday

Wow ~ 3 posts in 1 day!  This week's goodwill goodie makeover was a little more time consuming than the past ones I have done.  The roll top of the bread box took a little extra time to paint, distress, and wax ~ but it was well worth the effort.  Here's the makeover result ~

There was a weird glare coming from the bread box in these photos ~ the "white" that is showing up in the corners and other places is not actually there.  I think maybe the sunlight and flash caused it.  Right now, I have those great thrifty candles displayed on it.  It has been great to have some extra storage space in the kitchen ~ 'cause, really, who couldn't use some extra storage in the kitchen.

I'm hoping to get in some painting this weekend.  The weather is suppose to be changing tonight, and I would like to have as many makeovers in-the-process before it gets too cold to paint.  Then I can spend time this winter distressing, waxing, and tweaking ~ plus have something to post about!


  1. I love it! Did you brush on the paint, or
    use spray paint? I don't have time to do
    mine, right now....I have one with a pull
    down door on the front in my kitchen and
    keep my vitamins and supplements in it.
    I need to paint it, too. I am too busy
    doing ornies. You did a great job on it!

  2. I spray painted it ~ I really like how fast that is and the smooth coverage it gives.


  3. This turned out awesome. Good idea about usung spray paint.

  4. Your breadbox makeover turned out awesome. Great job.

  5. It is gorgeous. I also use spray paint because of the coverage. It is the stain that gives it the aged look and I love it. I will miss painting all winter. Right now, the weather is perfect for grunging candles!
