Craft Storage From A Metal Bread Box

4 Materials
1 Day

I found this metal bread box at an Estate sale and I couldn't pass it up. I had upcycled a wooden bread box before as a charging station in our guest room and it turned out really nice.

Here I am holding it before I started the makeover. It was a little scratched, dusty, and had a seventies fruit print on the front.

I started by cleaning it up and giving it several coats of spray paint. Black first, then a white coat.

This picture was after the first black coat. You can still see the design on the front a little bit.

I usually paint a black coat first so when I use a sanding block to lightly distress the black shows through.

After the white coats were completely dry I decided to add some vinyl to the front.

I knew this would be extra craft storage so I looked up the definition of Maker and used it as my design. It was short and I knew it would be perfect.

I used my Silhouette and vinyl from StyleTechCraft to create it. The colors are lime green and teal and this is the glossy vinyl. I also used transfer tape to get the design onto the front.

After the vinyl was on I was done. I added some storage baskets to the inside and it now houses all of the supplies for my Silhouette Mint rubber stamp maker.

It is perfect!

And it looks great in my little crafty space.
