Little breadbox redo...or not?
Thrifty Thursday takes place each Thursday and is hosted by Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville,
It's Vintage Thingie Thursday over at Colorado Lady's place...don't forget to go by and tell Suzanne how much you appreciate her sponsoring it for us...
Today I only have one Thrift store find, but I think it also goes with Vintage Thursday along with a little item Dear Hubby made me 38 yrs ago. I hope that is considered vintage enough...The Thrift store find is the little Chicken on top of my bread box
I found this cute little girl at my favorite Thrift Store several months ago. She doesn't have anything written on the bottom, but she looks vintage to me.
The bread box is my little gift from DH. When DH first started doing wood working to go with his Home Building he made me this little breadbox out of pine and stained it. Well we didn't know that you never seal the inside with varnish...WE DID, so it was rendered unusable for years. I finally took it out of storage about 12 yrs ago and painted a scene on the front and painted it to match my kitchen. I mostly used it on top of my freezer to hold papers, but have recently moved it to the counter next to the stove. All the smell is gone and it is finally usable as a breadbox...yaaa.
My question today is Should I leave it painted as is, or should I redo it?
