They had half price at the my favorite thrift store, I just love that! I ended up purchasing this vintage bread box. I was thinking that I might keep the box so decided I would re-paint it to match my kitchen. I really liked the blue. My kitchen is an old country kitchen and my decor is pretty eclectic.
I have lemons, pasta, and chocolate as my theme in the kitchen. I know it makes no since at all and my colors in the kitchen are blue, yellow with a splash of red.
Some how with all the mix it just works. Here is the bread box with the rose and country theme, All tho, I love roses my kitchen is the one place I do not have roses.
Not to bad really... Roses country theme.
What I would of loved to do with this is make a mail caddy out of it. I am just not good at carpentry. Wish I was, but no. So, I needed to find a graphic with lemons. I did, at The Graphics Fairy. I made some paint with the gray putty paint from Valspar I had on hand and mixed it with some blue paint that was also a mixed oops paint. It gave it a blue tint. I then used Carbon paper behind it and traced like a school girl. I believe the flowers on this graphic may have been pansies but instead I made them hydrangea's. I painted the lemons and graphic with Acrylic paints by Folk Art. Colors: Magenta, white, greens ivy, old leaf, moon yellow and lemon yellow. I sprayed the new paint with clear coat from a company called Tree house clear coat.
Hope you Enjoy! Cindy
