I went to the Kane County Flea Market this past week end ( my fav flea market)!!!!! and I found this beautiful cedar chest that needed some love.  Only $35 bucks fully lined in cedar. I jumped on it knowing it just needed a little love.  The hubby sanded it down and fixed the feet and painted it white.  I distressed it to bring back the old chippy feel to it.  My motto is redo and relove and you can bring life back to almost anything.


Before

After some Love!!!!


And now a beautiful new coffee table that I can store all the winter throws in.  Love the flea market and the great finds you can get there.

    1. Thanks Susan,
      It was a steal and really not hard to just sand down a little and then add some white paint and then I sanded a little more and it came out great. Easy Peasy!
