These cedar chest makeovers include two-tone paint finishes, whitewashed paint, re-covered fabric-topped chests, and heavily distressed or layered paint.
PAINTED FURNITURE: 18 CEDAR CHEST MAKEOVERS
1. GREEN CEDAR CHEST
The first chest is a layered paint project. I layered green paint over black and then distressed the green paint. Green is one of my favorite colors, and back a few years ago.
2. STAR CHEST
This is one of my favorites because it’s red. I antiqued the red paint and added iron stars to the front of the wood chest. I stole this technique from a friend when I lived in Florida.
3. CEDAR CHEST PAINTED MULTIPLE TIMES
It has been white, light green, and dark green. The chest is currently black, and we use it as a clothes catch-all in our bedroom. Do you guys have a place in your bedroom where you pile up clothing?
4. TALL LANE CEDAR CHEST
I bought this cedar chest at the Nashville Flea Market. It was a unique piece, tall and narrow compared to other chests. It had a Mid Century modern look. We added a shelf and scroll work to the piece.
5. PINK CEDAR CHEST
I also added a scalloped wood detail to this chest. But that's okay because it was a plain chest to start with. It needed something. The wood detail was it.
