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 

Few of my Favorite Fusion Blues



Another personal project was completed using 3 of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paints . I chose little tea pot, refrew blue and azure to complete my cubby shelf.


The size of the cubbies were awkward but the Staalmeester sash brush worked like a dream.


I alternated the 3 colors in each cubby


and I went with Renfrew blue on the exterior, each color went on in 2 coats


The colors work so pretty together!


Check out the jewelry box done in azure I did for myself too


and done ;)
