    What a cute idea!! Sturdy enough it can really be played with! Fire House or Barn for boys; will be keeping my eye out for a bread box next time I go garage selling. Thanks for sharing.

    Plain bread boxes like plain garage doors are boring. But you have certainly kicked it up many notches with your very active imagination. It's so special! I'm sure you receive many complements for it. Please let us see more of your artistry!
