Homemade Chalk Style Paint Pie Safe

Last year we bought an old RV.  It needs some work to get it running well, but we hope to do a little traveling in it.  I’m also hoping to make it look pretty – as if I need another remodeling project.

Inside the RV was this little pine cabinet.  It was cute, but bland.  It reminds me of a pie safe.

I whipped up a batch of homemade chalk style paint.  I used turquoise on the outside and bright white on the interior.

I love this chalk-style paint because it distresses so easily with just a damp rag – no need to make a mess sanding the paint.

I wiped a lot of the paint off, so some of the wood grain underneath would show through.

It makes such an adorable display cabinet.

  4. Turned out really cute. Do you clear wax or seal it after you wipe the paint off?
    Love that color.
