Wood Distressing Tulsa Photographer

About a week ago I posted a picture of this vintage pie safe I purchased at a local antique store. I got a ton of requests for “after” pictures once I was finished touching it up. I only have 2 “before” pictures of it. The one from the online posting and then one while I was sanding it. It’s not exactly what I had envisioned…. I went a bit too far with the distressing. Too much on the drawers {and in the same spots!} and too much on the lower cabinet doors. But David says he loves it just like it is and so I’ll probably leave it! I used Heirloom White as my paint color. Obviously it was that horrid Barney purple but when I started to sand  I saw that before it was painted purple it was painted the exact shade of blue as the wall I now have it against! The pictures show the progression and end result. I’m pretty darn happy with it!

[…]  I got this 1950s pie hutch for $130 {talked down from $220} from a local antique store. I took it apart, lightly sanded the entire piece by hand, then spray painted it that gorgeous cream color. Yes, spray paint. No brush stroke marks, dries 1,000 times faster, and who doesn’t love spray painting? After the few coats dried I did some sanding to bring through the color underneath. I admittedly got wayyyy too heavy on the sanding. But David loved it and didn’t want me to change it. I also spray painted the hardware with a rubbed oil bronze spray paint so I could keep the original pieces but update them {who likes GOLD?!}. Gave the entire piece a coat of polyurethane protectant {spray paint, of course} and FINISHED! It now houses most of my newborn props+blankets. Full post on pie hutch […]
