A little something I bought at Kane~

Though I haven't had a chance to share my adventure at Kane, I just had to post about a little something I bought at Kane :)  Big surprise I know! Me, buying something! lol~


This is a two piece pie safe that is in incredible condition!  You can tell it has been well loved and lovingly taken care of.  Though the tin has been replaced with glass, it's still an amazing piece!

With so much Emperor's Silk, Olive, and Antibes Green in the shop right now, I thought it would be a good time to try a different color.  Please welcome,  Cream! (no, not the music group lol!)  I've always described it as a soft butter color, and now as you can see, it truly is a beautiful soft warm butter color! 

After painting with cream, I used clear wax first and then dark and love how it gently aged the paint to match the unfinished wood...well, actually I used ASCP dark wax on the untreated oak and let me tell you, it is beautiful! 

This isn't the best photo...you see, I've got this new phone that's supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread...well I had my old phone for almost 6 years...so I'm not getting along with this phone so well yet!  I will post better pictures soon:)

Until more photos, I hope you enjoy the one I've got for now:)


Enjoy~
