This was the typical honey brown bread box with some homemade etching on the front. My oldest daughter transformed it into this cute storage box. Great for art supplies, as a gadget charging station, to contain project this-n-thats, or, well, I guess bread.
She decoupaged the front in this beautiful teal and green paper and added a glass knob–the color of old blue mason jars! The paper is waxed with Annie Sloan’s clear wax, sealed, smooth and ready for light washings when needed.
The inside is painted in Annie Sloan’s chalk paint–Duck Egg Blue–then lightly distressed and waxed with clear wax.
Drill some holes in the back of the upper shelf for all your gadget charging cords and keep everything organized and charging without the jungle-mess of cords cluttering your counter or desk top. The small top shelf is 5.5″ deep and 16″ wide and 3″ tall. The bottom cubby is 7.5″ tall.
The outside of the box got a coat of Old White… I adore the vintage hinges with distressing! The entire box has been waxed with Annie’s clear wax and measures 17.5″ wide and 12.5″ high. It is 8″ deep at the top and 12″ at the bottom.

The chalkboard pictured is available here (listed as Chalkboard No. 2).
