FRESHEN UP A BREADBOX
Give a dark wood breadbox a lighter outlook like Diana Petrillo of Adirondack Girl at Heart did here. Apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to any exposed hinges to make paint drops easy to remove. Apply two coats of cream chalky-finish paint to the wood, allowing the paint to dry after each coat. Remove the petroleum jelly with a paper towel. Lightly distress the edges of the breadbox with sandpaper. Secure a stencil on the front of the piece. Apply black chalky-finish paint with a stencil brush using a pouncing motion. Remove the stencil and allow the paint to dry. Apply paste wax to the entire project, let dry for 10 minutes, and then buff to create a smooth satin finish.
