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 

Milk Painted Dining Table in Homestead House Confederate Grey



I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.


When you work alone and need an assistant you have to think outside the box ;0) The leg is longer then an arm right?


For this table I went with Homestead House Milk Paint in Confederate grey. I used it on this jumbo chalkboard too.


After a good scrub, power sand to smooth the surface and a wipe down it was time to paint.


Two coats of the dark grey milk paint applied with my angled sash Zibra brush, which cut easily into the corners gave the table a gorgeous new look.


But I did not stop here, a light sanding to take down the milk paint to a smooth buttery soft surface


then apply Fusion Mineral Paint discontinued antiquing tough coat. It is just like their clear tough coat but as you can see, tinted with brown. This added warmth to the cool grey tone of the milk paint as well as providing a layer of sealed durability.


To add even more interest and dimension, Fusion Mineral Paint's clear glaze mixed with their coal black paint was brushed in the nooks and crannies on the pedestal, table apron and  across the top.


On the top I added more layers of color using the dark grey milk paint and dry brushing it across.


Everything was lightly sponge sanded and another coat of the antiquing tough coat applied all over then a clear coat on the top and the dining table was completely transformed.
