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 Algonquin shelf / key rack


I painted 2 exact shelves with key racks; one warm white, one a burnt orange. The warm white one sold right away but the burnt orange one remained unsaleable for over a year. As much as I hate admitting the color choice was wrong, sometimes it is true.


So I tried Fusion Mineral Paint's in Algonquin, a new to me color to try. Distressed it a bit and added  Homestead House espresso wax  for a rustic feel. I have my fingers crossed this color is more appealing to the masses ;)
