Hope Chest Refresh

I recently purchased this Lane cedar chest for $10.00 at a garage sale.  

 I love the look and my first choice would have been to just polish it up and call it done.,
 However,  there was chipped veneer and the finish couldn't be saved. So,  I gave it a coat of creamy white paint and then called it done.
Let me know what you think.  I just listed it on craigslist for $150, so wish me luck.  Love, Kelly.


  1. Wow! What a beautiful piece! You got one heckuva deal. I think it looks lovely. Well done.

  2. I love it!! The white really makes it "pop". Great job!

  3. That's very pretty! The original reminds me of a friends hope chest when we were teens.
