NEW PROJECT

I got a wonderful find. A co-worker had a damaged 1930's cedar chest that she sold to me for very cheap. It is wonderful and still smells like cedar! The lid is cracked and will need to be repaired. Then I will decide if I want to refinish it. I love the scratches though. They are like wrinkles on a persons face....they are to be cherished because they tell the story of life.

I don't mind dings and things either. They are stories to tell, and mysteries unanswered.

Nice find. :o)

I love it just the way it is. It has character and history. You are so lucky in your finds!!
