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 Mineral Paint's English Rose Jewelry Boxes


Millennial pink has been on the radar for awhile now, Fusion Mineral Paint just released English Rose, a beautiful soft shade of pink. I did 2 wooden jewelry boxes in two different finishes. Follow along to see how each were created. Also check out an MCM dresser in this gorgeous color I did too.




Both wooden jewelry boxes were fully painted in the soft pink with 4 coats for full coverage (above is after 2), a tip to save paint would be to use a base coat of Fusion's concealer or primer ;)



Once the 4 coats were dry, I added Fusion's champagne metallic paint over it all and highlighted the hardware and edges with the NEW rose gold wax.

This jewelry box is all sparkly, pretty and girly!! The perfect look for a little girl inheriting her late Grandma's jewelry box.




Now onto the 2nd jewelry box, I used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to give an aged mercury glass feel to the etched glass door pane.


The edges were distressed and Homestead House's espresso wax added for a further aged look with dimension
