Infant's Chiffarobe turned Primitive Pie Safe

I wish I would have taken a "before" picture.  This was an infant's chiffarobe, complete with mickey mouse contact paper inside of the drawers!  The bottom drawer, which would have went across the entire bottom of the piece, was missing, so I cut off the bottom drawer supports, cut "V"s into the sides and edged the "V"s with flat moulding for support.  I also added a bottom support board for stability.  I then stripped off the glossy white paint and gave it a distressed finish of barn red and tan with chippy dark blue knobs.  It sold quickly at the Vintage Barn Antique show in Rathdrum, Idaho.
