An Antique Cedar Chest in Nicole's Yellow

Did you know I'll custom mix you your very own paint color and then you can name it anything you want? I just love custom mixing paint! I hardly ever use colors straight from the chip, though sometimes that's fun too! This antique mahogany and mahogany veneer Lane cedar chest got a fresh dose of style with a warm yellow leaning just a bit towards wheat. I did it custom for a client. The piece was not without its issues, specifically a top that put me through my veneer removing paces. You can check out this post I did last week to see the step by step on it. Underneath the tired mahogany veneer was absolutely gorgeous tulip poplar, which I sanded, stained, and sealed. I lightly distressed the case, and finished the paint with a dark wax. It's all set for its new home!
