Bigger than a breadbox? Springtime in a Can!

 I bought this plant stand/shelving last week
at Rockfish Gap Country Store….
It had no top,
but right beside it in the booth was an old breadbox, 
and it fit atop perfectly.  
I thought it would be cool to marry the two pieces.
The stand was originally a deep forest green
and the breadbox, off white.
Here it is after a little dry brushing 
with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.
 I continued the dry brushing 
with Antibes Green and Country Grey
 to build up a similar finish on the two pieces...
 I drilled holes in the bottom of the breadbox, 
threaded washers onto screws 
and screwed into the top posts of the plant stand.
 Next, I decided to try this product. (Thanks, Frances!)
Everything Glaze in "Sunshine DayDream" and it is!
 I love how it perks everything up!!
 Wow, like springtime in a can!
I added some stenciled letters….
and it makes a great little potting stand/flower holder.
