You can see from the before pics of this project it was beautiful green grass and warm sunshine. Well it turned cold and the holidays came so it sat for a couple of months until I could get out to my dad's workshop that has HEAT- yes heat in this part of the country lately is a wonderful thing!!
This project was of course one the hubby wanted to put right in the burn pile but heck no you can't waste something has good bones. Not to mention it was free. So take it apart and use it for something else!! It was a fun project that I have wanted to try for a while- man was I nervous to cut that bad boy down but it all worked out- thank goodness. Even got the nod of a good job from my hubby.
Here is the after. I cut the top two drawers off. Used some plywood from the garage (don't tell the hubby it was from his stash) and some trim to tie it all together. The trim came from the building I work in that was built in 1887. I added some color with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and Louis Blue. Great little storage chest/bench now.
It's off to Mama's for the January sale- yeah that is next week already. Hope you all have a wonderful New Year and here is to a great 2014!! I have a feeling it is going to be a great one!!
