Bread Box Charging Station

Thirty Handmade Days contributors Shawna and Devenie from Salty Bison have a couple clever tricks up their sleeves for turning an out-of-date bread box into a functional storage space once again.


While the pretty blue paint, chevron paper, and refabbed hardware are a definite upgrade from the drab brown and kitchen gunk, it’s what’s inside that gives the old box a repurposed life. The ladies from Salty Bison added a power strip to the inerior, transforming it into a nifty little hair appliance organizer or electronics charging station. Say good bye to cluttered bathroom counters and messy wires!

Bread Box Planter

Kim from Too Much Time On My Hands has loaded up on ideas for creative outdoor planting. This is a necessity since she has limited space and strict homeowner’s rules. She put some of her own creative genius into play by turning this old bread box from her garage into a charming little planter.

That decorative opening on the front was just begging for a little greenery, wouldn’t you say? I love the rustic look of the distressed finish and barn star knob. What objects have you found that double as great gardening containers?
