Trash to Treasure Repurposed Pie Stand: From Pie Keeper to Make-Up Keeper

Upcycled Pie Keeper

For years I have wanted to go to the 500 Mile Yard Sale that extends from Virginia to Mississippi.  The north/south route named the U.S. Antique Alley Yard Sale began Memorial week-end  passing  through portions of Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.

HWY 11 Yardsales

The next portions of the 500 Mile Yard Sale include:

June 5-7                       Dixie Highway Yard Sale (Ringgold to Marietta, GA)

Aug. 6-9                      World’s Longest Yard Sale (Addison, Mich. To Gadsden, AL)

Sept. 30-Oct. 3            Highway 411 Yard Sale (Leeds, AL to Newport, TN)

Here I am on the U.S. 11 in McDonald, Tennessee, as I begin my treasure hunt with hubby in tow.


My husband and I bought an oak desk from Bill, a self-described “junker.”  The desk was originally owned by a Congressman in the early 1900s.  With true southern hospitality, Bill gave us a bag of home grown tomatoes as a thank you for stopping by.

So many antiques, so little time!  It was difficult deciding what I absolutely needed to buy!  Know the feeling?  At this stop I found an old pie keeper and some miscellaneous plates and dishes.  Once I bought them I knew exactly what I wanted to make out of them!

Here’s the pie keeper before painting.

Using some white spray paint I already had, I sprayed the pie keeper.

All I had to do was add a plate to each level and then add my make-up.

 This pretty make-up keeper will be a nice memory of my day on the U.S. 11 Antique Alley Yard Sale!  And, yes, I plan to visit the next three portions of the 500 Mile Yard Sale in June, August and September/October!
