This absolutely stunning cedar chest has the most beautiful carved details, that we knew *had* to be highlighted! The recesses were allowed to stand out with gently dry brushed layers of Linen milk paint. Gentle distressing for a naturally antiqued effect lends a classic touch to this charming piece. The top has been refinished with Walnut water based stain to accent the cedar grain for a perfectly cottage chic contrast, making this a beautiful farmhouse inspired treasure!
