Lane Cedar Chest :: custom project

 A client of mine dropped off this Lane Cedar chest.  It's in excellent condition, just needed a bit of a makeover.  I love pieces like this - they are so versatile.  We actually have two in our house. One is in our living room under a big picture window and it serves as a place to sit and store the kids toys . . . and the other is in our entryway.  However, I love a chest at the foot of a bed, storing linens and pillows - and that's exactly where my client is putting hers. 

Here is how it looked when she brought it over:

She requested the chest be painted Old White and distressed as needed.  We decided to remove the decorative hardware.  The pulls were a bit dated and since they weren't serving an actual purpose, we filled in the holes and painted right over them. I love the clean, classic lines. 

I love how it turned out, such a perfect addition for a bedroom.

  1. I love it - looks modern, simple, clean. Very pretty and good choice losing those pulls. I have a Lane chest to redo as well, but wasn't sure...thanks for the inspiration!
