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

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
