I showed you these pictures of some thrift store finds several months ago. When I saw the bread box I knew that it wouldn't be used for bread. I wanted something to put my phone books in and knew this would be perfect. I have been gone so much since then until I have just finished the project.
It now looks like this sitting on my desk in the kitchen. My phone books are hidden (except for the crack in the bottom where you can see through with the flash of the camera). I promise you can not see it if you are just looking.
Can't wait for my next will be a HUGE project that is finally being completed (enough for now). Don't even think it is something that I have done because all I have done is pay for this project. Maybe pictures tomorrow of this :-)

I love repurposing things. They make for quaint organization. It's nigh unto impossible finding those old bread boxes anymore. (My freezer these days serves as my bread box!)
