All of my pants are housed in this Lane cedar chest. It’s full. My fat pants, skinny pants and everything in between pants are piled so high I have to sit on the lid to get it completely latched. And OK, there are more fat pants than skinny ones…but you never know if those little guys might be needed again…so I keep ‘em. I live in a dream world…and I like it here.
I’ve been meaning to tackle this project for quite some time…a year…or more. This Lane cedar chest was originally laminate, “blonde“…ugly enough as it was, but then I managed to make it even more hideous by crackle painting it…in the same blondie color over a dark brown. What was I thinking???
The inside is cedar…of course. Even I…the brush toting, crazy woman…have painting boundaries and would never befoul the inside of a cedar chest!
I didn’t even bother removing the handles before painting ‘em. Too lazy…
I hardly ever use painter’s tape…takes too much time and I’m impatient. So, I dipped a small artists brush in my favorite “Antique White” paint and carefully outlined each piece. Trust me, it was faster than taping everything!
