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?

Rustic Peppermint Stick sets for Christmas



Rustic décor is popular where I live, I had a great customer who purchased rustic fall pumpkin sets from me in the past


send me a photo from Pinterest  asking if I could create something similar.

Once cut, and painted it was time to sand and wax, my helper is so sweet


Now to add just a wee bit of something to the white ones; raffia, jute, twine and stars, hmmm




one set I added tea lights by drilling in 1 1/2" holes to the top so they sit level


Pretty cute Christmas décor
