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 

Chippy table do over


So after my epic fail on the "chippy" table (see lessons learned here) I chose to redo it in a safe, stick to anything paint, Fusion Mineral paint . I went with raw silk again as I am just loving the crisp but not stark white tones of it.




For ease for distressing the edges, I rubbed the Fusion beeswax bar along them all before painting. I repeated another layer after I easily wiped the edges after the first coat and used a sanding sponge to distress the edges again after coat #2.

Once all dry, I tried Fusion's black wax to age one of the legs but my youngest daughter voted to keep it the crisp clean white distressed look. A quick wipe with mineral spirits removed my aged art work easily and it was back to fresh paint.


Seeing it will be used lots as a table or desk on the top I gave it a coat of Fusion's wipe on tough coat and walaa this baby was finished.. for good this time ;)
