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 Frames




Frames are such a fun way to add color in a room. Here are some I did using Fusion Mineral Paint 


First 2 up are done in English Rose, a soft pink



The ornate vintage wood frame had 2 coats of English rose then a coat of custom mixed rose gold and to bring out the ornate details, Fusion's ageing wax was wiped over all.


Chicken wire was added in the center making it perfect for photos, sunglasses, jewelry etc.



The wider solid oak frame was distressed then white washed with Fusion's liming wax for a soft pretty look. Wide grosgrain ribbon was hot waxed and power stapled in the frame to great a sweet barrette display frame.


This wide solid oak frame was painted in Fusions little tea pot. This is such a pretty aqua color.


To bring out the ridged details and give it a fun aged look, I added Fusion's ageing wax


The aged aqua finish is so lovely


On this solid wood frame, I applied Homestead House Milk Paint in Quaker blue layering on Inglenook and homestead blue and topping off with Fusion's espresso wax.




Magnetic wire mesh was added to this one




Fusion's brushed steel for the win on this pretty frame



And on this artist frame, the outside frame was painted a soft grey and the inner textured frame was painted Fusion picket fence, a bright white


A fun font was used to create a room sign to add to the center, perfect gift for my sweet God Daughter.
