Chocolate Pie

Chocolate Pie
Painting furniture is all the rage these days, but sometimes nothing compares to good old fashioned wood. This here is a pie safe that was Ashley’s grandmother’s. 
 She switched it around a bit to match her style. I don’t know that that faded, busted down green color was matching anyone’s style, unless they worked for the Forest Service or something. (Like MY grandma did! Hi Grandma! Oh, who am I kidding, I’m quite positive my grandma does not read this). 
 I love how she used green on the inside, not only does it complement the deep brown nicely, it’s a reminder of the pie safe’s past. Thanks Ashley!

    You are too funny! Love the makeover and I also like that she gave a little nod to the past with the green. Looks fab.

    I love that makeover. Great decision to keep the green inside, that really adds punch. It’s a beautiful cabinet.
