White vintage meat safe

Hope you all had a good day yesterday - we spent the day with a few other families, our good friends, down at Rodd Point with a picnic, our dogs and the kayaks. Such a relaxed beautiful day...despite the humidity :)

I have a sweet old meat safe I painted this week available for sale. I bought this from a builder who was working on a house in Mosman and had the job of clearing out the house as well as demolishing it. He had a few interesting pieces but most of them needed too much work or were too big for me so I just took the meat safe. I painted this a lovely soft white and gently distressed it.The wire mesh on the sides is in lovely condition as well.

Available: A gorgeous piece of Australian history : an original meat safe complete with wire mesh sides and mesh under the drawer to keep away those pesky flies. (And how bad are the flies this summer!!)
Original lock and vintage key, dovetailed drawer with hand carved screws on the backs of the handles. Nice little details that get my heart racing at all beautiful craftsmanship.
Hand painted in a custom mix oyster white chalk paint. Interior original timber, cleaned and waxed. Gently distressed, super smooth finish and a waxed top coat.
84w x 38d x 106h cm

I also have to introduce you to the best kayaker in our house - Charlie! he is so cute, as soon as you go to push the kayak into the water there's charlie at the waters edge. He sits between by legs as I paddle and doesn't fuss at all. So happy and absolutely loving it all. What a joy this dog is.
