Lane Chests are part of History
This beautiful vintage Lane chest came into our warehouse looking completely different. When clients send us their Pinterest projects, We Chic It! for them.
This client had planned on painting her family heirloom, cedar Lane chest like many people share on Pinterest. Her dad didn’t even remember seeing it in his mother’s home in any other color than “dark”. So when she starting to strip the glaze and white paint off the chest, she began to see a beautiful wooden design and decided to bring it “to the professionals to do it right”.
Here’s her only original picture of when the chest was "dark", the second picture is how we received it, and last picture is once We Chic'd It! It took a little while stripping the glazed layer and painted layers before we could see the beautiful design. Once it appeared, we were excited to seal and move forward. Only problem was there were stains all over, including cup stains. After using the liquid stripper, we determined that we would need to use a sander to strip down the remaining marks, and use a slightly darker stain to bring it back to life. When the stain hit the bare wood, the design glowed! Another reminder of why we do what we do. We breathe new life into your everyday furniture!
This family heirloom is already filled with her grandchildren’s toys for when they visit her. We’re so blessed to have assisted her family in updating their Lane Cedar Hope Chest for many more years to come.
