Remember that game? In our family, 20 Questions always started with that one question: Is it plant, animal, or mineral?
The second question: Is it bigger than a breadbox?
My entire childhood, I thought, "Well, how big IS a breadbox? And who owns one of those things anyhow???"
Well, now we do. I hit up Goodwill this afternoon with the kids just because I was in the mood to see if I could spot a few items I've been craving. And a breadbox wasn't one of those items, but when I saw this old-school beauty (ha ha) I had to buy him. It helped that he cost less than $5.
What can I say? I am a sucker for that window. And now that we have 2 kids, which means 4 people each with their own bread preferences, I'm also sick of trying to figure out where to store all those loaves. So now I have my answer.
The makeover literally took me less than an hour tonight. And it needs a touch up, but I'm pretty excited about how it looks. I simply removed the front panel and spray painted this sucker white, then when it was dry I reattached the front panel. These pictures are not the best quality (low light and no flash), but they cover the general idea.
