Boring Blanket Chest Gets a Makeover


My hubby's aunt had an old blanket chest that was pretty enough, but kind of blah. It has nice detailing that got lost in the brown finish. So a coat of Pure White and Louis Blue Annie Sloan Chalk Paint gave it an entirely new finish and made the details pop. More details on this piece can be found on my blog.

    I'm worried this approach to painting everything old will come back to bite us. I just spent lots of time and $ for harsh chemicals to strip away a 1960's craft idea called "antique-ing". From a mediteranean red to its original brown mahogany, it looks like my 92 yr. old mother's hope chest again- the cedar lining adds scent to all our favorite board games.
