Important Message about Lane Cedar Chests

Hey, All! I haven't been around in a while. I hope all of you are well and enjoying Spring after the crappy winter we had. I wanted to take a few minutes not only to show you this awesome chest I scored at the flea market but more importantly to alert you to the dangers these chests pose.

Out of curiosity, I did a quick google search to find out how long my happy find has been around, turns out 1933. I also stumbled on some sad information that needs to get out there. 

I want you to know, these are potential death traps. Children have tragically suffocated in these. You may be a fellow painter and happily found one of these too or maybe one of these was past down in your family from generation to generation. Chests manufactured from 1912 and 1987 have a locking mechanism that once inside you cannot get out. Lane marks all of their chests with serial numbers so it's easy to date yours by going on the Lane website. It's an easy fix too, Lane will send you a free kit to change out the lock and make it safe. Please pass this on to anyone you may know that has one.

Here's the link to get your replacement lock....

Now onto the refinished and now safe chest. I am super happy with the way it turned out. I stripped some of the wood down and stained in Minwax dark walnut. Dry brushed the carved areas and straight painted the rest in warm white, Behr Ostrich, my personal favorite antique white. Followed it up with General Finishes Polyacrylic.

Thanks for stopping by and please spread this very important message~Sue

As reported by Stanford Medical, It is in fact the ONLY reason women in this country live 10 years longer and weigh on average 19 kilos lighter than us.

(And actually, it has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING to do with "HOW" they are eating.)

BTW, What I said is "HOW", not "WHAT"...
