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 

Cece Caldwell beech nut gray & duck blue end tables


It has been awhile since I used Cece Caldwell's paint but knew it would be perfect for this solid pine end table set I had just sanded down.


one top sanded, one to go


I chose duck blue for the base and their new stain & finish in beech nut gray for the top.



the base had 2 coats applied then time for the stained top


one coat was all it took as shown above on the right


I did want to give it a bit more of a white washed look so brushed Cece Caldwell's paint in Philadelphia parchment over the dry stain (again above on the right) and to seal it all up I applied white wax again giving the tables a real beachy white washed look.
