Farmhouse White Bread Box

This slatted wood bread box had seen better days until it received its farmhouse makeover.

After a good scrubbing I painted 2 coats of House & Canvas's angora white.

This paint color is such a pretty warm white, see it on this end table, sweet watch chest, and a bit on this laundry room sign.
When dry I lightly sanded it all and minimally distressed the edges.

House & Canvas is a chalk like paint that needs to be sealed. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's clear wax over all the surfaces.
I was trying to decide if dark wax (left) or leave plain (right) was best, dark wax won.

Fusion Mineral Paint's ageing wax was added to the edges for an aged look.


The verdict was split as to add words or a stencil in my Facebook poll so I will leave it for a bit and see what the buyer would like.

The farmhouse style look; what would you add if anything?



the back was finished as well
