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 

Fun Fusion Azure Chair


This solid wood chair in its classic square structure was calling for something fun to give it some pizzaz. Fusion Mineral Paint's beautiful color called azure fit this bill. First step was to power sand the chair to smooth the aging shellac finish and drip areas. note- Whatever shows unpainted will show even more when painted. Once sanded it was given a good cleaning and left to dry.


Fusion Mineral Paint goes on so smoothly especially when using a good synthetic brush. I distressed the edges between and after the second coat. Minimal distressing gives furniture a wee bit of forgiveness when the legs and edges get banged during use. I also sanded with a sanding sponge between coats and after too to just smooth the all in one paint to a satiny smooth feel.
