A Wedding Memory

I really love this "job" of transforming furniture.... especially when I can add a personal touch to one.  My client contacted me on Facebook about a Lane cedar chest she had.  She had admired a French Script Dresser I did last year, and wanted something similar done to her chest to commemorate her wedding day.

Okay, I really get into this cause it's all that romantic, and Romeo and Juliet blush and gush, kind of stuff.

Sign me up!

When it showed up, I was more inclined to suggest they toss it in the garbage instead.  What a wreck it was!  The backing was missing entirely and it wobbled back and forth so bad that I was sure the sides were going to crack before we got it into the house!
