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 Midnight Blue Antique Silverware Chest

I love antique silverware chests, rarely do you see many using them much more but I think they are fabulous on a sideboard for a holiday celebration to serve up the cutlery.

here it is in the original dark stain with red flannel and white silk lining begging for some color

Fusion Mineral Paint  midnight blue to the rescue.. a classic deep navy which blends well with all the original colors

Two coats then lightly distress the edges to keep it antique feeling and this beauty is ready to serve
