This cedar chest is such a great, solid piece and I've never seen one this tall.
It's very rustic and due to it's blocky shape and geometric designs I decided to redo the top and paint the rest of it black. It would be awesome in an entry way to sit on while you put your shoes on and to store extra hat, coats, mittens, etc.
Please excuse my garage. It has to wait until nice weather to be completed so all of our stuff is just stacked against the work bench right now. I'm sure you could care less, but I kinda do. ;)
I never get tired of black with warm wood tones peeking through!
It's got lots of little details that add interest. I thought about doing this one two tone, but decided it would look too busy, so basic black it is!
