We have this pie safe/cupboard piece that Hubs (I'm claiming GA's word since someone recently asked me why I called my husband dh) got from his aunt. He originally thought it was an older piece. He called me from her house and asked if I wanted an old pie safe. My first question was, "Is it in good shape?" When he said yes, I said yes! When I first saw it, I was a little disappointed. I realized right away that it's not old, it's just made in an older style. I decided it was made in the eighties because the inside of it is that lovely shade of country blue. The outside has been painted to thankfully cover that country blue. It isn't really a bad shade of brown, but the paint job is rather sloppy.
What would you do to this piece? My latest thought was to paint the insets with chalkboard paint and leave the rest as is for now. Or is there some type of paper that I could get to cover the insets? Maybe even fabric? The burlap? Anything?
