A Vintage Lane Cedar Chest in Cottage White

Another custom project for a client- This handsome c.1960 cedar chest was in desperate need of an update. You can't quite tell in the 'before' pictures but it was been poorly refinished once before and there was a sticky opaque shellac covering every surface. I cleaned the cedar chest, sanded it, and prepped it for paint. The client selected a simple white for the case, but wanted to integrate more wood, if possible, so I sanded stained and sealed the drawer fronts along with the top, and was pleasantly surprised to see the lovely solid maple of the drawer front and maple veneer of the top were both in beautiful condition.
      Finally I changed out the boring drawer pulls for a set of sassy bail brass pulls, to add a little twinkle.
