Roll Top Farmhouse Bread Box

I picked this roll top bread box up at a thrift store. It was definitely not in the best shape paint wise but I knew it would look amazing in a farmhouse style in warm whites.


It has great bones, a fun farmhouse roll top door as well has a bonus storage area in the top, for what I am not sure ;)

First step was to sand down the previously painted surface to remove most of the paint drips and smooth the surface.

Black spray paint in flat matte was sprayed on all the edges so when distressed the orange is not revealed but rather a classic black.

I applied Fusion Mineral Paint in the color plaster, a creamy color with my angled sash Zibra brush, perfect for the cut in areas and straight edges. I applied two coats letting dry well between each coat.


It was then minimally distressed  along all the edges to reveal the black underneath. To add a bit of whimsy I decided to stencil on the roll top but which one?





I chose this stencil #3 from Fusion as well and went with 

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 ...
