Rae Dunn Inspired Bread Box

If you haven't heard of Rae Dunn you may not be a farmhouse style fan. This uber popular line of kitchen decor is so simple yet so classic. Bright white with crisp black narrow font gives a universal appeal to almost any style kitchen. Follow me as I take a solid wood bread box and give it a "Rae Dunn" inspired makeover.

These solid wood bread boxes can be found everywhere but they are just so boring and generic. The simple smooth styling however is perfect for the inspired makeover I have in mind.

I first taped off the inside edges wanting to leave the interior the natural wood finish.

I am excited to try my new 2" angled Fusion paint brush as well on this project.

Country Chic's Wanderess rustic style


Country Chic Paint's limited edition wanderess is a lovely green with morphing color changes depending on original base colors and top coats. I used it on a sweet photo box and it was a sage green, pretty!




However on this cherry stained coffee table it took on a more blue hue and wait until you see what dark wax changed it to.



I am pretty stoked to try my new large oval brush from Country Chic Paint



the brush worked well, here is one coat applied, being such a dark base I went with 3 coats


then it was dark wax time, don't be alarmed when you find a thin skin on your dark wax, it is a sealing barrier the natural ingredients make when left for a bit, just peel off and go 

I love the deep pigment this antiquing wax has, it gave this piece such added dimension and character


here is half with and half just wanderess color alone


and after a full clear wax coat and buff, here she is.. LOVE <3 the rustic look it has
