This hope chest was minutes away from going on a burn pile!
A friend called to tell me that he had a few things I might be interested in, but the fire was lit and if I wanted anything I'd have to come right over. Luckily I was able to get there in time to rescue a few things.
This hope chest was missing the skirt around the bottom that forms the legs.
It was also missing the knobs on the faux drawers.
I gave the chest a fresh coat of paint using Dixie Belle's color Caviar.
Rather than put new knobs on, I used re*design with Prima molds & modeling material to create medallions to cover the holes.
I painted the medallions with Dixie Belle's Moonshine Metallics using the color, Gold Digger. Then I glued them over the holes using E6000.
I also painted some small legs that I found at Lowe's using the Gold Digger.
What a shame it would have been if this chest had gone up in flames!
Call before you burn!
There are plenty of us out there that love to rescue & revive discarded furniture.
