Want a romantic French vintage bread box?  The before/after photos of this completely transformed recycled bread box wow-ed me, and they will wow you also!



It took reader Lorrie from Finding Secret Treasure lots of effort in trial & error before she succeeded in creating just the most adorable French bread box from a ‘70s ugly duckling thingo that none would give 5 cts for on a flee market. Except for Lorrie. She saw just the potential for it, when she picked it up at a thrift store.


‘Ugly Duckling’, dated bread box (the ‘before’)


Lorrie shares her journey of trying various stenciling techniques on her blog. The winning technique is to printing your image on freezer paper, cut it in sections and apply them one at a time.
