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

Little Tea Pot tea party


Solid wood children's size table and chairs are hard to find it seems but when I have found some in the past there is always a line up. I actually had 2 sets last year before Christmas and just so happened to score another set this year. And I knew the perfect color for it, my new favorite of the year, little tea pot from Fusion Mineral Paint tones for tots line.


It had been stained royal and red then painted over with a light grey



but after a good sanding and scrub down it was ready to paint




 bring on my favorite color, little tea pot and gave the base 2 coats as well as both chairs


 and stained the top a dark all in one stain/poly 4 coats and walaaa
