Daddy’s Cedar Chest made over

Hello all,

Recently I painted the cedar chest that my dad built when he was in high school.  I was torn with painting it but the finish was in pretty bad shape so after hem hawing back and forth I decided to just go ahead and do it.  I am so glad I did, I painted it black and also added a padded top to it.  The top of the chest had some deep gouges and some of the wood was splitting.  By covering the top it was sort of a way of preserving the outer portion of the chest but not having it be seen.  ( Does that make sence?)   I decided that this chest also needed some legs, since the bottom portion came off years ago.  Anyhoo, I can’t find the before pictures so these after shots will just have to do.  chicken wire basket 014 chicken wire basket 013
