Nick and I have really loved hope chests and we really wanted to buy a chest lined with cedar to keep our blankets in. Well I don't know if any of you have ever looked for them they are sooo expensive! Holy Cow! So originally Nick thought about just building one but that would have taken a long time and we weren't really sure about it. Well Nick just happened to go to some fishing store with his brother Chris and saw one that needed some work but he really liked it and asked if they were interested in selling it. Well they were and for only $50! We were really happy about it and took it home and decided to strip all of the stain off and sand it down (all of which Nick did by himself). Any way here are the before and after pics... I was pretty impressed with it!
This is when we first started...not so pretty
This is as we were stripping off the finish
This is after... so pretty!
Nick lined the inside with cedar, isn't it so pretty?!
