Vintage Industrial Bread Pans

Hello!  My hubby was looking through our local metal scrap yard a couple of weeks ago, with permission of course, and came across a couple of old rusty industrial bread pans.  I loved the old patina they had.  They were lovely and since I also make bread boards and love baking bread, I thought they couldn't be more perfect for our kitchen. 


I've never really blogged about this little cabinet before so I thought I would now.  A couple of years ago we were out for one of our summer bike rides and came across a yard sale.  There were only a couple of things left, one of them being this cabinet.  It was filthy and yellow and definitely needed a makeover.  It was only $15 so we couldn't pass it up.  I cleaned it up, painted it white and added crown molding to the top.  I usually use it to store my spices, flours and pasta, but decided to give it a little better organizing and put a few of my favorite things in it for display as well.


I put some of our long bread boards in the bottom, along with an industrial rolling pin my hubby found and a bread basket.



I love the way it turned out! 


See you next time!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Take care,
Diana

  5. Lovely! I love it when a piece that speaks to what you do finds it's way into your decor. I have paintbrushes that my dad and grandfather used as bridge painters in New York. I am a furniture painter and proudly display those old brushes hanging on our living room wall : o )

  8. What beautiful photos of your lovely cabinet! It was a great find especially at that price. I love the deep crown top and the glass doors and how you worked some magic with white paint. Your hubby finds some really cool pieces. I like how you grouped the bread type collections together and the wood tones really add some richness to the white. I am curious about the stack of little plates/dishes. They look like they are wood or are they really old butter pats?

  39. Hi sweet girl. Just read your comment on my blog and wanted to respond... your email isn't attached to your blogger id in my inbox so I'll keep it brief and surface-y. I do have to say though... that I am so saddened to hear you are going through a tough time.. I hope your man is alright. I will try and remember to pray for him when I'm praying for my man too. I know totally different situations but they still affect our very LIVES don't they? Hang in there girl. At least you know you're not alone.. I read the other comments of others in a funk and there appear to be many of us. Such as life.

    Blessings,
    Sasha
