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 

Sister Jewelry Boxes in Pink & Purple


A great customer brought these 2 "matching" jewelry boxes for her sweet little girls.
One wanted pink and the other purple.


Both boxes were cleaned well for good paint adherence then all hardware and swinging doors removed. This makes all areas easily accessible to paint perfectly.




I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's English rose for the pink one. Even though the wood was light it took 3 coats to get the coverage I wanted.  A light sponge sanding smoothed all the painted areas. I then added Fusion's rose gold wax to give it some sparkle.





For the purple one, the customer chose Cottage paint in passion fruit, a deep rich purple.  Again this color required 3 coats to get the perfect color.  Again, a light sponge sand smoothed the paint. To seal it I used Fusion's pearl wax. Look at the difference it makes giving just the prettiest of shimmer to the purple color.

All hardware was put back on, the mirrors cleaned to a sparkle, the lined drawers, sides and cubbies cleaned and the doors put back on and they were complete.









And here are the adorable little girls with their "new" jewelry boxes!
