I was at my shop one day and discovered this amazing vintage meat safe. It really was a mess and the shelves were missing as well as the bottom had rotted and been replaced with press wood.
In all reality I would normally passed it by but I had always wanted one and this was the first chance I have had to find one. So away it went home with me.
The safe had been used a great deal at one time or another. What attracted me to it was the wonderful front door, it’s frosted glass and rusty handle were a lovely chippy treat. I went about cleaning it up with degreaser and some elbow grease.
I knew that with a new coat of paint it would look like the chippy beauty I wanted.
I am always on the look out for more storage for my little nest and the meat safe turned out perfect to stack the covered boxes that I have filled with craft supplies. I used vintage wall paper on the bottom and the back to give it a cleaner look.
A top the meat safe gave me another area to use for a lovely vignette and a place to show off my new hat boxes made by Jeanne d’ arc Living. I purchased them from CP who has a wonderful Etsy Shop Neat Old Stuff. I always buy my JDAL magazine from her monthly. It is like Christmas when a package comes from CP for it is always wrapped with vintage wallpaper and a surprise is always tucked inside.
I send a special thanks to CP for all of the extra’s that she sends her customers!
