The kitchen counter tends to be a space that gathers way too many items.
Believe me, I'm no neat freak but I do like some semblance of organization.
Packages of rolls, bread, muffins and so forth really tend to pile up on the counter.
"What I need is an old-fashioned bread box," I told myself.
In a mail order catalog, I found one! The cost? About $52. YIKES. Wayyyyyyy too much.
But lo and behold, last weekend at a yard sale, something on a blanket in the front yard jumped out at me.
It was an old-fashioned wooden breadbox that even came with a hole for ventilation! woo hoo
From the looks of the inside, it didn't look like it had been used much at all.
The cost? $2. Perfect! Much better. I bought it.
Once home, scrubbed it, let it dry, then painted it a pale, lovely yellow to match the kitchen walls.
I gave it several coats to really cover the wood.
Now the kitchen counter looks much neater, my wallet is happy and so am I.
That's the remodeled breadbox, at the top of the post.
