My "new" cedar chest ... and I love it!
After the makeover ...
This is a cedar chest I acquired several years ago. I like it because it looks like a table. I've had it in a room my husband and I have updated and it needed an update too.
My daughter called it the "brown blob"! It did not belong to anyone in our family so I thought why not paint it.
I knew it would bring out the details in the piece.
We had the off white trim paint and the chocolate glaze that was used on our kitchen cabinets so my hubby and I went to work!
I had fun glazing this piece and watching the details come to life!
My husband even took the handles off and spray painted them oil rubbed bronze.
We didn't have any cost with this makeover. It was all things we had on hand or left over from other projects.
I have been playing with accessories on top of the chest. I will tweak and tweak again! I am still unpacking boxes. We painted another piece that goes in this room also and I love it too. I will share it next ... it went from drab to fab too!
Thanks for visiting!
