Just over 2 yrs ago I purchased this antique pie safe to go in the kitchen of Villa Gorilla.  I bought it for a great price at a consignment store.  I love this piece of furniture.

With limited actual cabinets in the kitchen, my intention was to use it storage of dishes, pots, pans, etc.  Instead, it became the game cabinet and place to put stuff we really didn't have a place for just yet.

Then, one afternoon... 

The proverbial light bulb went off and "Presto-Chango!" From Pie Safe to Craft Safe! My craft supplies have a new home and are much more convenient to access!

There is some tweaking to the organization and paper storage solutions to be figured out, but I'm thrilled that my supplies are no longer shoved into the bottom of the coat closet when company is coming!

Thanks for reading! Now go get crafty!


  1. Love it! I have one very similar. John bought it for me when we lived in PA. (Amish made) I have it my craft room for storage of stamps, etc.

  2. Brilliant idea! That's a great way to hide crafty stuff.

  3. Love it!! Works great for craft stuff!!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
