|New & Improved Bread Box|
Happiness is Homemade
I came across an old bread box that looked much like the image below for super cheap. My first reaction was "Sweet, this would be handy in the kitchen". My second thought was "but it's dang ugly." I bought it anyway and it sat in the garage for a few weeks as a mulled over its makeover.
The part of the bread box that put me off the most was the large "Bread" signature. It doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the kitchen. I set off to our very large collection of paint cans and dug out the white color to paint the entire lid piece. I'm about as much of a messy painter as I am a cook, so I put painters tape on the areas I didn't want the paint to get on. In order to totally cover up the "Bread" signature, I had to apply about 4-5 coats of paint. It was a lot.
The quote "Happiness is Homemade" was fitting because my husband and I work hard to make our home a happy place to be. We try to show the kids that we love and enjoy each other. It's not a coincidence that when we are at our best together, the kids' attitudes and behaviors are at its best too!
