Ugly Bread Box

Once upon a time.....

there was an ugly bread box.


So I decided to get it and fix it up.

I couldn't find anything for the top of my refrigerator that I was happy with.

So that's where the bread box came in.

A little CeCe Caldwell Hershey Brown chalk paint.


Trimmed out in Vintage White.

I used my cricut to make a stencil.

And I got some scrapbook paper and covered the ugly wheat looking thing in the center.  I glued it on and brushed a thin coat of Mod Podge over the top.

I also used some dark and clear wax.  

And now I have something new for the top of the fridge.

And I might as well have something I like on top of it, considering I stand in front the fridge several times a day wishing the grocery store fairy would go shopping for me.

 But she's a moody thing and rarely wants to venture out.


I still need to figure out exactly what I want to put with the box.

So I ask... 

what's on your refrigerator?  Do tell.

I sometimes join the following parties -
