My Decorative Bread Box



I bought this bread box a few months ago at my favorite thrift store for only $9.50. When I bought it, my plan was to paint it white, but now that I make my own appliques I have tons of them at home, so I could use to put on the bread box as well.

On my furniture I always ended up using the appliques that are broken in two pieces or the ones that are imperfect that I was going to throw away...

... but when I glue them on to the furniture and paint over the appliques, you can't tell the difference..

I didn't like the flower on the cabinet glass door and besides that, the glass has many scratch marks that I need to cover.

When I went to Micheal's today, I came across these pretty designer decorative papers that is almost like fabric. I got two different designer paper to cover the glass. I put the polka dot see through paper over the black toil paper for a softer shabby look.

I liked the way it turned out!!
