Hello everyone! So sorry I have been MIA this last week. I wasn’t able to
blog due to computer issues. Well, $800.00 later, I have a new notebook and I’m back in the house, long story.
. . . Now on to the fun stuff
I purchased this cedar blanket chest at the Salvation Army for ten bucks. . .Yep ! Sorry about the photos, this chest is nice and straight not bowed although it appears that way in the photo. Can you believe someone wrecked this elegant beauty? I love this old hardware with the key hole. Nope, it didn’t come with the key. . . awe shucks
First application of stripper, can’t wait to see what’s underneath this baby?
ANTICAPATION is making me wait . . .
Second application of stripper.
WOW. . Check this bad boy out! I am so Jazzed!
After two days of stripping fun, it’s time to sand. Oops, I forgot to take photos of the sanding process. Oh well, moving onward. . .
I infused dark walnut gel stain with oil base raw umber, still pretty wet.
This chest is going to be super dreamy and full of treasures when it’s done.
I hope I can encourage you to grow and try new things, to me it’s a great way to give back.
