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

Chocolate Fusion Desk


I am not usually a brown painter, to get a rich brown I usually go with stain but Fusion Mineral Paint has a color called chocolate that looked yummy. I chose to try it on this solid maple desk.




I just bought some painters pyramids and love them for lifting a project off the ground with easy access to the base all around. Now it is time to paint with the luscious Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate color in 2 coats.


After the first coat, I wet distressed the edges to give some added character to the solid paint color


 I chose new silver brushed stainless steel pulls and knobs, perfect


And because it is a desk that will get lots of use on the top I added 3 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint wipe on tough coat with a wet rag to complete the transformation ...
