Deb from Lake Girl Paints says that this chest has been in her friends’ family for years. ”Grandma Pat Hemje received this Lane Cedar Chest when she was 16. Now it has a home with her son’s family.” Even though the chest was worn down, they planned to keep it as an heirloom and asked Deb for some help.
First, Deb stripped off what little of the old finish was left. She stained the lid of the chest to showcase the pretty woodgrain. Next, she painted the rest of the chest in a creamy white. She painted the front of the cedar chest with a design the mimics a stamp and represents the family. Now, the keesake isn’t just worth keeping, it’s worth taking a second look!
