Redressing an old breadbox

Hi! It's the weekdnd!!! Yay!
Thought I would show you what you can do with something like this.
Have ya ever come across an old bread box and thought "Cool, but what would I do with it?  Well this hand made bread box was just screaming for me to save it. Some one had lovingly built this and that is one of the things that really draws me to a piece. One of a kind, I like it.  Sorry I am so poor at taking before pictures, but as I blog more, I will get better. Promise! 
I am so lucky I have ANY pictures of it that are decent because I was running out the door suitcase in hand to fly off to Alaska and forgot to take pictures when I dropped it off at the gallery! My sister Mary Ann was here, and took some pictures, ...and she reminded me that I needed to get pictures of it when I displayed it at the gallery...ppppffft   like I needed reminding, ha.....well of course I ran into the gallery and set it up on display and raced off to catch my plane...I remebered it about 20 mile down the road.  Thank you Mary for these pictures!



Here I am putting the final touches on it before I take it to the gallery
 
Dancing flowers...I love them and people start acting disappointed if I don't put them on a piece..
 





You can see the shelf inside peeking out before I put the front doors on, it is green with aqua polka dots.





This was a fun piece to work on ( I know, I say that about everything I work on, don't I??)

Hope you've gotten some ideas for some fun projects of your own. I'd love to see them if you want to share. Just email them to me at csoconnor1@gmail.com
Have a wonderful Fathers day!  Tata for now, Carolyn
