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 

County Chic's simplicity desk


Take one well loved hand me down home made desk and add Country Chic Paint's crisp clean white called simplicity and you have this! A fabulously reloved piece of furniture given years more use!

Taken from dark and drab to light and fab through these simple steps

my tools for the relove - forgot to put Country Chic Paint clear wax in photo


it was well loved but we left eh character dings and such but I had to replace the missing plugs



two coats of simplicity followed by a sponge sand when dry and 2 coats of Country Chic Paint clear wax and here it is







Excellent makeover giving this hand made piece a whole lot of life for years to come!
