Vintage Bread Box Makeover

With all this extra time on my hands I’ve been able to finish one of the many projects I’ve been pondering over. This red vintage bread box hasn’t matched my kitchen for years. Today I dug out the paint from the back of my craft closet and gave it a badly needed makeover.
