When you give a mom a new bread box…

Friday night, on a whim, I searched Amazon with the words “vintage bread box.”

The old bread box we’d had on the kitchen counter for more years than I can remember was truly an eyesore. And by the miracle of Amazon Prime, its replacement was on our doorstep when I got home from church yesterday morning!

This little beauty (which I think has an air of “Call the Midwife” to it) has a a much more efficient design than its predecessor, and I absolutely love it. But as soon as I put it on the counter, it got Middle Sister and me thinking about rearranging…

What if we…”

“Well, we can’t do that right now, so what if instead we…”

Half an hour and a ton of moving and wiping up of nasty dust bunnies and grungy spots later, the new breadbox had led to a new look in the dining room:

IKEA cart just moved to the other side of the doorway - brilliant!

Dining table turned 90 degrees, bench moved to family room, red chair placed at the end of the table for a little extra POP.

A whole new look, all because of a breadbox. 🙂

    • Oooh, I’d be embarassed to post a picture. It was something I’d picked up at Walmart many years ago – originally a natural wood color, and painted black at some point. Lots of chips in the paint and food splotches cemented on. 😦
