Would you believe that it’s raining here again! I think we have seen more clouds and rain in the last few months than sunshine. Fortunately, yesterday was a beautiful day and I took advantage of it by taking some pictures of the cedar chest outside. I didn’t want to take pictures of it in the garage since it was such a nice day and besides my garage has returned to its messy state.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we bought a cedar chest for $60 at an auction for one of our daughters. It had been sitting in our garage for over a year gathering dust while waiting for a make-over. Below is a before picture of the cedar chest.
And here is the after photo.
I sanded the cedar chest and then I applied Miniwax Gel Stain. I painted the front framed section of the chest with off white chalk paint, sanded it and applied gel stain.
I love how the gel stain made the chalk paint look. It has the look of marble.
Now we just need to get it to our daughter who has been waiting patiently for over a year.
As always, thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments. They are always appreciated.
