I was so inspired by this Bread Box Transformation at Paisley Inspirations. I had never even considered making over my breadbox until I saw this. However, we just painted our kitchen red, and I couldn't really find a patterned paper that went with some of the other elements in our kitchen (like my curtains), so I decided to just keep my bread box redo simpler.
Sorry, I don't have a before picture. This is a cheapo oak-colored wood breadbox I got 5 or 6 years ago from Target. I painted it black, slapped on some vinyl cut with my lovely Silhouette, and voila!
Again, if you don't have vinyl, a stencil would work just as well.
I don't think it could get easier than this. And yet, it looks lovely in my newly painted kitchen.
