Vintage Bread Box

So, yesterday I was just minding my own business when all of a sudden…I found the bread box that matches my canister set!!! Wow, the lead up made that seem way more exciting haha…but, I was thrilled!

The, bam! The breadbox!

So, in all my experience in using bread boxes, they seem to make the bread actually mold faster?? Yep, I did a pseudo science project once bc I was convinced. It traps the moisture or something and I don’t know if my little fam can eat a whole loaf of oatnut in four days (I mean we love bread, too). So, I have pretty cluttered counter tops as it is, then the light bulb went off. I decided to use it as an organizer and love the results!

Everything that was cluttering my counter top is now nicely contained. It fit most of my cookbooks and all the pens and junk with room to spare. It also came with a little shelf that would come in handy if I didn’t want to stuff all the pens and scissors. I am really glad to have this little corner looking all organized and sheeeeit. Okay, so scoop up a bread box if you’re like me and have tons of crap in your kitchen that needs a hiding place!

I’m sorry to those of you who follow me. I am so ADD and have a hard time sticking through with projects. Also, sometimes I just forget to take pictures! I’ve been up to a lot lately. First, I am a thriftoholic and can’t walk away from anything I love, especially furniture (it used to be vintage clothing as well, and kinda still is -.-). Second, we live in a small two bed room condo with a decent sized balcony, and I’m constantly on the brink of stacking my finds and have very little room to work on power tool projects and full blown redos. So, this leads me to Three – I have been selling a lot of awesome stuff on Craigslist here in Denver! And omg I love it!!! It is so much fun. If you’ve followed my Instagram you can see a few pieces I have listed, but I have so much yet to list. It’s exciting.

I used to sling my vintage clothing in an Instagram shop, and that was also very gratifying, but after about a year things started to slow down and I started to get bored (big surprise). So, I switched it up to handmade clothing and reworked vintage and that was okay, but very stressful. So then I was like eff, I need to do something I love again! So, I started this blog! At first I was just buying furniture because I love to collect, but then there were just too many pieces I couldn’t walk away from. I rented a storage unit and started hustlin furniture and I haven’t looked back! Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I want to own a furniture store one day. I love to not have overhead, but I also loveeeee staging. That’s one of the fun parts, imagining the furniture in use! Gahhhhhleee. Well, I am hoping to post more here much more often! Check out my Instagram to keep up with my finds 🙂

Ps- thanks for reading through this super rando posting that probably makes little sense 🙂
