Bejeweled Bread Box

Hey Peeps,

So in love with this I could seriously gush and swoon...but I'm not really the swooning type.


So about a year ago I posted that I had thrifted this bread box, but I had actually bought it in November 2012 and it promptly went into the garage much to Julian's horror. He loves when I bring things home and store it in the garage (yeah right!)


Anyway, continuing my chalk paint love I decided that I needed to paint her up. After I finished painting, I knew I was terrified of trying a transfer methond didn't want a graphic but she did need something. Anyway I had these ruby coloured glass knobs and I thought that would give her the vintage glam look that I wanted.


I LOVE it. I love how the glass reflects against the white wood, way better than the original wooden knob. I just think she is so pretty now, in fact too pretty to put ion my kitchen and have the kids maul her so I think she's going to stay in my craft room as storage, then again I may change my mind.


DIY Delight or Disaster? Oh she has delighted me more than words can say. This I have decided, is the look I want, white lots of white, white, with a little wood, bling and glass. It only took me a year and a half of blogging to find out what I like and I'm loving it, we have been doing some serious DIYing in the house. Oh man how I do LOVE Autumn! I'm loving red as an accent colour but I also love that I can swap it out any time I like.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  2. I'm loving that white bread box, too, especially with the red glass knob! What a delight . . . for you! You have me thinking of trying to find some purple glass knobs. How cool would that be? Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I pick up all the ugly wood pieced that show up at my local thrift store. I'ts amazing how a little paint, some embellishment (yes, even transfers) and they become quite stunning. Well done! You even moved a piece out of the garage.

  9. Yup, out that beauty up away from the kiddos:) the knob really made it special. Your craft room has red accents all over and this breadbox will be cute in there. 2 years of hoarding finally paid off!!

  10. Going with the bejeweled knob was perfect. It's so unique, it's a Mel makeover if I've ever seen one and it couldn't be more perfect for your craft room. You can always salvage another, less glammy one for the kids to paw in the kitchen!

  11. It's a delight. And you keep throwing me off with your seasons being opposite mine. You'd think I'd get used to it. If course, winter here is NEVER going to end.

  20. What a cleaver and beautiful way to jazz up a plain bread box! I think I had that same box once upon a time! Should have kept that thing!
