Refurbished Cedar Chest

A friend of mine was looking for a house warming gift for her sister in law, and wanted to give her something unique for her new house.

She found this chest on Craigslist for a steal, $30!! And then hired muah to redo it!!

I started by sanding it down.

Gorgeous wood underneath!

Since it's a brisk 20 degrees here in Nebraska, project chest had to moved inside.

I told my friend I was gonna keep it! 


  1. Very nicely done! I have a similar chest that I would love to do something with, but my dad gave it to me and he is so proud of it so I'm reluctant to do anything to it just yet. : ) But this was a very nice transformation, good job!

  2. I really fascinated reading this kind of craft! I adored how the heart transforms into a star, glow! I have one of this in my cabin yet not totally a small but kind of bigger than a treasure chest. Maybe, I can craft it just like your ideas. You have classy works here!

  6. You did a wonderful job on this, I love the distressing and the top is just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this at the History & Home Link Party this week! Take care - Dawn @ We Call It
