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 

Dark Grey Jewelry Box with a fun surprise color

Jewelry boxes look so fabulous when they are reloved in color including classic neutrals. So many are found in thrift stores in beat up stained wood color or like this one in a smooth generic dark finish.

This "cherry" wood finish jewelry box has loads of storage and a classic design. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash which kept it classic in color but refreshed ready for many more years of service. Fusion is an all in one product which goes on smoothly and covers in just one coat over this dark original surface. I like to use small artist brushes to get in all the tight areas and a nice synthetic brush on the rest. I used my favorite cling on for the larger surfaces.

Lightly distressing the edges adds character. Even though the Fusion Mineral Paint is a stand alone finish you can add to it, I chose to add Fusion's black wax over the whole piece to deepen the color and add dimension.

and to add a pop of fun I painted Fusion Mineral Paint's Azure on the drawer sides,, attention is in the details they say ;)

The above wall art is done in Fusion's Ash as well but has white wax, check out the difference

I have received product as a brand blog rep in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains links for Fusion Mineral Paint to help you find the items I used easily. There is no monetary compensation to me, they are just added for your convenience ;)
