Step 1 – Mix your milk paint and let sit, using the ratio 1 part water to one part Milk Paint. Give your bread box a good clean getting rid of any dust, breadcrumbs etc.
Step 2 – Give your bread box 2 to 3 coats of paint and then distress to your liking.
Step 3 – Print out the word “bread” on your printer using your favourite font. Then using transfer paper transfer the word onto your breadbox. Then using a liner brush paint on the word with black paint. Let dry and then distress the lettering lightly.
Step 4 – Using a soft lint-free cloth and wax the entire breadbox.

What a wonderful transformation! Love the lighter color and the lettering too. Thanks so much for sharing your farmhouse bread box at Vintage Inspiration Party.
Thank you for having me Betsy! It was so much fun… as usual!!
I love your bread box. Love the color and the distressing, so much better than the boring brown. I seen a bread box the other day, now I wish that I had grabbed it. Probably won’t run across another anytime soon.
Oh I hope you do Linda!!! I’m sure you will and then work your magic on it!
