cedar chest

last winter, a colleague gave me a beautiful cedar chest that needed a new home. it was in pretty rough shape with some water rings, nail polish, and other stains. but all the damage was surface-level so it just needed a little elbow grease and finish. my folks are in town this weekend, so my mom and i decided the time had come to finally refinish it.

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
