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 

Chair Side Table do over in Fusion Soapstone




Up until now I have only ever redid one project that seemed to be a hard color to sell and sure enough once I repainted it cream from cranberry it sold in short order. This cute chair side table I had done in light grey quite awhile back but it never got much attention and eventually I just tucked it away in one of my girls rooms to store. I recently pulled it out and updated it to a darker grey.


makeover #1 in light grey


Above is my trial doing top and side inserts Fusion Mineral Paint's soapstone, a dark gray but quickly decided to go with soapstone all over it all.


Once two coats were all dry I added Homestead House black furniture wax to add a bit more dimension and to the tops Homestead House clear wax for added protection and here it is dark grey...




This color is so hard to photograph but above ones are truest to reality


these are definitely not true to color but give more of the pieces structure and style
