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 

Pine dresser goes shades of blue

 Shades of blue transform this well loved pine dresser into a unique one of a kind art piece I call Nebula.

Pine is a soft wood and marks easily so rather then trying to sand out the marks why not add texture to camouflage and add to the character of the piece.

After it was scrubbed well and dry it was time to start the paint process. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in midnight blue, a classic deep navy. Two coats gave it such a rich beautiful color that looked amazing with the gold hardware but of course the solid color only enhanced the dings and marks. Time to add the texture.

Fusion Mineral Paint  fresco is a texture powder that easily mixes with the paint. I chose laurentien and azure as accent colors mixing each separately with fresco powder. Randomly dragging across the drawer fronts and body, I did laurentien first and after it was dry applied the azure.

When dry, all sides were sanded and a wash of midnight blue went all over to tone it all down.

I love this color and have used this container on other projects like this 1- mens valet, this 2- sweet MCM cabinet, 3- vintage silverware chest and 4- a long low dresser. This dresser is the last project for this container, good to the very last drop!! Perfect to add water in the jug to create the wash and use every bit.

Although the original hardware looked great with the navy, it was not my favorite with the shades of blue so the hardware was spray painted many coats of matte black. Better right?
