Cedar Chest Reveal!

I posted about this cedar chest I had found at the Goodwill months ago. It sat in my garage for a long time. I actually sanded the top and stopped, unsure about what I was going to do with it. You can see the damage on the top was not really repairable(at least by me).
My inspiration came from Miss Mustardseed's Sheet Music Dresser. Go and check it out here...sheet music dresser.

I primed her first with a roll brush and then painter her with Behr in powdered snow. (from my Altar'd Paint Book!). I gave her a light sanding and then glazed her. The last step was to put the sheet music on her top. And this is how she turned out...

And here is one where she's open.

My daughter wanted to keep her but she has no room for her and she doesn't go with the decor. I tried pushing the shabby chic on my daughter but she was done with that at a young age. Now it's all about peace signs! Anyhoo, she's for sale at the wonderful place I have a booth...Everything Goes in Phoenix. I hope she goes to a good home!

I'll be linking up to the following:

Wow it looks great--I used to have one just like it--If I still had it I'd do this too!

It'll sell quickly, if it hasn't already. It's darling. I have my own mothers', circa 1940-something. And it has my/our wedding dress in it - for some reason . . . didn't work for either one of our 1st marriages, lol!

Would love for you to drop by and link up to Passion for Paint this weekend.
