Every once in a while I will opt not to paint a piece of furniture. I don't like to paint pieces that don't need it, don't require a new look. This mid century modern cedar chest is the perfect example. It's in excellent condition, and the style feels fresh and modern, even though the piece is about 50 years old. I sanded, stained, and resealed the top as it was the only part that didn't look like it was made yesterday. Isn't it handsome!!
