Redid my grandmother-in-laws chest using this as the inspiration. I really like the way it turned out. HOWEVER, I would be careful as to what color black to glaze with. I picked an acrylic that was called something like wrought iron. It looked a little green when it was diluted with the glaze medium. Not something I would have picked on purpose but I still love the final product.
Cedar chest makeover so going to do this my grandma gave me this year her cedar chest trunk that my grandpa gave her for their second anniversary. Going to use it as a keep sake place for all of Coops special stuff. Need to make a frame around it like this to fit colors in our bedroom.
