Hi friends! I have a couple of quick make-overs for you today. The first is this great cedar chest. Here's where it started:
This was a terrible black drippy finish. I have learned to mostly stay away from previously painted pieces, but I just really like these legs on this one.
Goal here was redemption. I sanded down most of the drips, and got out trusty red latex paint. I did a cross hatch pattern with both coats of paint. I wanted to give it some texture without adding any more drips!
Then the whole piece was dark waxed. I am not always a dark waxer - but on this it just felt right. How fabulous would this be at the foot of a bed. Or how about a coffee table? The backside (which I neglected to take pictures of) is refinished the same way.
And the best part:
OOH, look at that lovely cedar!
