Farmhouse White Bread Box

This slatted wood bread box had seen better days until it received its farmhouse makeover.

After a good scrubbing I painted 2 coats of House & Canvas's angora white.

This paint color is such a pretty warm white, see it on this end table, sweet watch chest, and a bit on this laundry room sign.
When dry I lightly sanded it all and minimally distressed the edges.

House & Canvas is a chalk like paint that needs to be sealed. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's clear wax over all the surfaces.
I was trying to decide if dark wax (left) or leave plain (right) was best, dark wax won.

Fusion Mineral Paint's ageing wax was added to the edges for an aged look.


The verdict was split as to add words or a stencil in my Facebook poll so I will leave it for a bit and see what the buyer would like.

The farmhouse style look; what would you add if anything?



the back was finished as well

Fusion champlain dresser turned sideboard love


Everyone loves color but for large investment pieces I usually choose a timeless neutral. This very large but solidly made oak dresser is made to last but the finish was dated. Champlain to the rescue, it took the dresser from dated to a statement!




dark wax was added to give added dimension and definition to all the great details





This statement piece sold in about half an hour of posting and is now serving as an amazing sideboard in a fabulous home where it provides loads of display area and storage for the family. Thinking outside the box for a pieces purpose and refreshing it in a new amazing color can give so many pieces you may have new meaning and use. Check out Fusion Mineral Paint for a selection of fantastic colors to choose from.
