I purchased this Meat Safe a few years ago on a day trip to a gorgeous country town about an hour car drive away called Daylesford. I love visiting Daylesford as it has an Hippie Vibe about it. I love wandering the main street, peeking into the shops filled with knick knacks, clothes and rustic home wares. On the trip I purchased this beauty we had ventured out of the main street and went hunting for antiques and second hand furniture stores.
I had always intended on painting it to suit our decor.. so I pulled out the trusty chalk paint to get it into our style. The first two photos here show what the Meat safe looked life before its transformation. The third Picture is a close up of the paint technique I used to make this piece seem like it was painted years ago and in a distressed state.
I used my trusty Annie Sloan Chalk paint in off white. So now I just need to wax it with the new black wax for a gorgeous distressed finish!
