{Updating a classic}



So i know tons of people that have these Lane cedar chests and they all look the same – old brown wood.  Very, very dated – but they are nice, heavy duty and classics so we cant just trash these things!

So a little paint and some new super cute fabric is all it took to update this 70’s chest into something that we would still buy today :)

I painted it with Valspars New Black and then got the black/white damask from Hobby Lobby – love it.
