Happy Sunday my friends! Grab your coffee and get cozy, because today I’m sharing the most gorgeous vintage yellow pie safe. I’m seriously obsessed with this thing and sooooo excited to share it with you all today. This pie safe originally belonged to a distant family member for decades and decades, but my mom was lucky enough to get it many years ago. She used it on her back porch for years, meanwhile I’ve been begging her to let me “borrow” it. Well, she finally caved. My parents actually came for a visit last weekend and surprised me with this pie safe. I was literally jumping up and down with excitement. It was better than Christmas morning. I spent the week cleaning it up and styling it in our front room. When I was photographing it for the blog I found myself just standing in front to it, staring in awe at the beauty of this old cabinet. I think I took about 291 pictures of it. I just can’t believe it’s finally in my home.
I love these tin panels and the old door knobs, they add so much character and charm to this piece.
It was painted this light yellow color when my mom received it years ago. I actually love the color and I have no plans of changing it. I know I say this about a lot of things, but this is truly one of my favorite pieces in our home. I’ve admired this pie safe from afar for years, so it’s just so awesome to finally have it here in our home. There is so much history here and old beauty that makes my heart skip a beat. I wish I knew more about it. Since the tin panels look to be machine-punched, we’re thinking it was likely made in the early 1900’s. I’m going to research it more, but either way it’s bursting with history. This is the reason I love vintage so much–every piece has a story. It’s like I have a little bit of the past in my home and this sweet vintage pie safe definitely has story to tell. The next chapter starts here!
Thanks for dropping by today my friends. Let me know what you think of this pie safe, I’d love to hear it!
