Upcycled Bread Box!

So I altered another charity shop find…..well it was going in the bin, so I had to rescue it! Had To…..!

This was originally a plain wooden box thing for bread. I stained the wood (with acrylic paint) and glued scrapbook paper onto it. The paper already had a grungy look to it, so I went with it. I liked the aesthetic, so just followed through. On either side I covered two cardboard tubes with paper and glued one end to a point so that anything (paint brushes, etc) I put in, wouldn’t fall out. One the other side I papered over a little box and used that for pencils.

inside BBInside I stained the wood again, and used it to store paints (in the orange pouch), paper, palettes and a jar (for water). I love how the door bit folds open so that I can paint on it like a little table, so cute! So yes, I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out – only took a day to do it.

If I find something to upcycle again, I will do a before and after, or even a video, ha!
