Hand Painted Chicken Pantry Armoire Before and After


it was this drab olive beige with some unhappy design that scared most people.


So I rescued it and fretted and sweated over what to do with it for two years.
Well, of course, Chickens! My Specialty.

My Dear Roo (Husband) put shelves inside so it can be used as a pantry or whatever someone wants to use it for.
Thanks Honey Roo.

I Love the Vintage Spoon we put on for the Handle.

It's available for sale in my Art Gallery Online
