This Piece Will House Many Treasures Soon


This great old pie safe was a wonderful find.

It will be the centerpiece of our booth at the Farm Chicks show. One of the things we love about it is all the SPACE to display the treasures we have been hunting for over six months now.

It started off in a nice enough green like this…


We decided to give it a nice coat of Chalk Paint in the Primer Red. We added a little of the dark wax and this is what we ended up with.


We left the inside very rustic and untouched. This cabinet appears to have housed paint cans, among other things.

Leave the character behind.

We did.


It’s ready to be loaded into the truck for the trip to Spokane.

Oh…here’s another chalk paint upgrade piece.

Great antique dresser. Large, six drawers.

We painted the drawers in Provence, Chalk Paint, of course.

We also added some great new knobs. Whole new look.

This photo doesn’t really do it justice since it’s taken in our dark storage area. I will make sure to share some better photos of it once it’s placed in our space.


If you haven’t tried Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint yet, you’ve just got to do it. This paint brings the “FUN” back into painting.

Transform pieces beautifully and quickly.

So glad you stopped in today.

Happy Spring Day!
