We recently purchased this very cool cedar chest and had kind of displayed it at the shop for about a month. Nobody seemed to notice it although it has great lines, wooden casters and a large brass key. Perhaps all the stuff we had on top of it kept its charm hidden!
Anyway, got a bit of an idea when brainstorming with W the other day and decided to paint it black – white was our first thought but I was afraid the knots would not be covered and the reddish finish might bleed through.
Sure wish I had thought to shoot a “before” picture because I think it turned out rather well. (Well, in the flash I now notice a spot that may need a bit of repair…..see it?)
Closed – of course!
A few interesting things inside – I’m sure W will rework it – LOL!!
Cannot believe I have managed three posts in three days. A new record!
