Bread Box Makeover

Sorry I have been MIA but our little boy was very very sick.  I have never been so scared in life and have never wanted to take the place of someone.  He had a horrible flu virus for 4 days.  I had no time to do anything but to care for him.  Then the hubby got a touch of it. 
I tell ya no fun, but they are both feeling much much better. 

We had a very productive day today!  I love days like that.  Anyways, I bought this bread box a few weeks ago at Goodwill.  I forgot to take a before pic but it was just boring wood color.  :)  Paint is so much more fun.  It has been in the garage waiting to be sanded.  Today the hubby finished it and I painted and distressed.  I think it came out great, wish I had a place for it.
