Happy Monday Everyone
Thought I would start the week out on a cheery note.
What do you think about my cedar chest makeover.
It’s a humdinger isn’t it!
The top was totally split into.
The Junktion Technical Specialist used a little wood glue and clamped the pieces together.
The JTS sometimes gets carried away and I didn’t get a photo with the top in two pieces.
And it was good as new.
Looking inside, you can’t tell the top was ever damaged.
nice distressed finish
turquoise underneath and cherry red on top
Martha Stewart stencil from Michaels.
I tried a new technique (new for me) to get the two-tone look.
Tomorrow I plan to do a post on how I got this look.
