Farmhouse White Bread Box

This slatted wood bread box had seen better days until it received its farmhouse makeover.

After a good scrubbing I painted 2 coats of House & Canvas's angora white.

This paint color is such a pretty warm white, see it on this end table, sweet watch chest, and a bit on this laundry room sign.
When dry I lightly sanded it all and minimally distressed the edges.

House & Canvas is a chalk like paint that needs to be sealed. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's clear wax over all the surfaces.
I was trying to decide if dark wax (left) or leave plain (right) was best, dark wax won.

Fusion Mineral Paint's ageing wax was added to the edges for an aged look.


The verdict was split as to add words or a stencil in my Facebook poll so I will leave it for a bit and see what the buyer would like.

The farmhouse style look; what would you add if anything?



the back was finished as well

Fusion Mineral Paint project # 1

I have been given the chance to try Fusion Mineral Paint and wanted to share my first project I did using it. I chose Laurentien which was listed as a twist on robin's egg blue (totally in my realm of favs). When it arrived I found it very minty, my youngest daughter's favorite color. ;)


An antique wood chair I planned to paint for the front door became the project of choice to use it on. I scrubbed and sanded down the chair to the bare wood.
 the before with stamps and glitter glue
 sanded to the solid wood construction
 and on goes the first coat
Once the first coat of paint went on, smooth as they said it would, it proved to be easily covering the light wood. It was however too opaque and modern looking for the old chair.
 I had stained the seat in hickory and got the idea to use the hickory stain as a wash over the green.
 It turned out perfect giving the chair dimension and kept it looking its age but with a ton of life.

thank you for sharing this great paint Fusion.. stay tuned for more projects, and if you want to give this beauty a new home, please get in touch with any of the contact links in the upper right corner ;)
