Before and After: Orange Chest

I am not doing so well at the taking the Befores.
So imagine a dirty grimy, spider filled old wood chest.
It needed cleaning and sanding and then some more.
most wouldn't see the potential, but just you wait.

The prep work is the worst part.
but it is the most important.
Painting is FUN!


Old grimy chest now a treasure chest!

A mistint was used for the paint, so I can't tell you exactly what it was.
After we painted it, we did sand it good and used a  minwax jacobean stain.
We also sprayed the handles with a primer,
then finished them off with Krylon Oil rubbed Bronze spray!
we being me and Jake!
