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 

Upcycled Tray


This is how I took a solid maple cabinet door and upcycled it into a fun tray.

After scrubbing the door up, I filled the predrilled holes and painted the entire tray front and back Homestead House Milk Paint in Quaker blue and sealed all sides with Fusion Mineral Paint 's tough coat. The next step was a wash of Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate which catches nicely in the nooks and crannies.


Dry brushing Fusion Mineral Paint  inglenook and homestead blue were next. All layers were sanded and once again clear coated with Fusion Mineral Paint  tough coat all sides in two coats.




Now to add handles, I used this awesome trick to measure your hardware holes perfectly.


Drill and install and you now have super secure handles while carrying items on your tray.


I added new felt pads to the underside to protect furniture it will sit on and it is ready to serve.
