Rae Dunn Inspired Bread Box

If you haven't heard of Rae Dunn you may not be a farmhouse style fan. This uber popular line of kitchen decor is so simple yet so classic. Bright white with crisp black narrow font gives a universal appeal to almost any style kitchen. Follow me as I take a solid wood bread box and give it a "Rae Dunn" inspired makeover.
