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-ified Doll House

One of my great customers brought me her childhood doll house to give a makeover to for her two little girls for Christmas. This solid cedar doll house was hand crafted with the smallest attention to detail and so well made. 

She wanted a fun exterior update for the not so small doll house, it is 4 feet long and over 2 feet wide.

There was a bit of damage on the roof so I took  one of the braces off and reglued it and the others and brad nailed them securely in place. I secured them further with flat head screws countersunk. Then the missing areas and screw heads were wood filled. Once dried sanded well and painted Fusion Mineral Paint  little lamb, a nice soft grey..

For the house exterior she chose Fusion Mineral Paint  in English rose, this is first coat going on but took 2 coats

and for the trim she chose Fusion Mineral Paint  picket fence, a crisp white. It needed 2 coats and required an artist brush to get such small details painted.

All ready to be placed under , ok beside ;) the Christmas tree to make two little girls pretty happy Christmas morning!
