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 

Mens valet - in dark grey

Vintage mens wooden valets are not commonly found in my treasure searches but when I find them they are always improved 100% with some paint and loving care.

Take this one for example,

I cleaned it up well and painted it in  Fusion Mineral Paint's Ash. This dark grey color is the perfect neutral not only for men but women too. Check out this gorgeous jewelry box, stunning hutch, wall art frame, as the base color of this bread box and home decor, mixed with other Fusion greys in the Restoration Hardware inspired dining table, along with quite a few more pieces I have used it on in the past. (just type ash in the search bar above)

Fusion Mineral Paint is such an easy to use paint as it is a one step paint in most cases. It has a built in top coat so unless the piece sees high traffic it does not need additional sealing steps and being highly pigmented it covers in as little as one coat, especially the darker colors. And its amazing "stickability" adheres it to almost any surface once cleaned and prepped accordingly.
And it goes on so smoothly to top it off! I have used quite a few brands and can 
say with great confidence, Fusion Mineral Paint is da bomb!

This is one coat of Ash that has been lightly distressed and  Homestead House black wax added in the crevices and edges just for added dimension and detailing. Simple yet stunning makeover giving this catch all chest years of service.

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  &  Homestead House to help you find the items I used easily. There is no monetary compensation to me, they are just added for your convenience ;)
