Here is another before and after. I got this pie safe in 2002. There were no doors on it but as luck would have it, at the same antique place in another booth were a pair of doors that would fit with little trimming! The pie safe was $200 and the doors $100. As you can tell in the pics, the pie safe had been given a coat of new white paint. Rather than strip it I opted to paint over it and had the doors blue color paint matched. I thought it came out a bit too green so I decided to paint over it in cranberry. The unintentional result was a sort of patriotic pie safe. LOL The inside of the doors are a mustard color which I left intact.
