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 

Fusion Azure Jewel Box

Years ago a good friend gave me this sweet little box that originally had tea in it, I have used it for my bracelets as it is black velvet lined and divided, perfect. But it is not the perfect color. Finally I took some time for myself and pulled out one of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint colors, azure.

I like simple classic styles but wanted to add just a little something to it, like a small raised design. Fusion Mineral Paint has some beautiful stencils and easy to use embossing paste.

I went with just a portion of this stencil to apply on the front side.

Just lay the stencil over spot you want and using pallet knife apply a thin layer of the embossing paste, lift and let dry.. at least 12 hours!! Yep I touched before and instantly remembered patience is the key ;)

I then gave it 2 coats of azure (working on another project behind with azure and 2 more of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint blues) and let dry.

and to make the stencil pop just a bit I hand painted with an artist brush some Fusion Mineral Paint metallic in silver.

absolutely perfect!!
