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 

Mission Style End Table with Fusion's Plaster & Cappuccino Stain

I refinished the matching mission style coffee table awhile back and just had the matching end table stored in the stock to paint area.  Needing to make room as well as get the set ready to sell together I pulled out the end table and finally finished it,

I did the same steps with this table too EXCEPT the top. The end table top is in great condition so I only light sanded it and then applied  Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino mixed with ebony. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. Each coat was left over night to dry well with only 2 coats needing to be applied.

The base was done exactly the same, Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster was applied in two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander.

Once dry and sponge sand distressed on the edges, I added Homestead House espresso furniture 
wax .  This set is now back to matching and updated for a classic farm house look.

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 sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint & Homestead House Paint Co.
