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 

Milk Painted Farmhouse Solid Oak Stools




I purchased these tall solid oak stools thinking they would be perfect in a white with dark wax.


So for coat number one I mixed up Homestead House Milk Paint in limestone and brushed it on.


The next day when dry I was just not feeling the white, the stools called for a fun color.
Homestead House Milk Paint in Laurentien was the color of choice.


It looked perfect, vintage farmhouse stool color for sure.


And of course in typical milk paint style, one stool is more green and one more blue :)


To seal the milk paint I went with Miss Mustard Seed hemp oil , it goes on so easy with a brush. Let soak in and wipe off. I then added Fusion Mineral Paint ageing and espresso waxes on the top and all the crevices to keep the farmhouse aged look.



they work great as a plant stand too ;)
