This post has been a llloooonnnngggg time coming. If you’ve been with us for awhile you might remember this post on my Lane Cedar Chest that I found back in June. The day it came home, we removed the base because it was falling apart and in disrepair. So, for the last, oh nine months (9?!?!), it has sat in our living room like this:
Not bad, but also it kinda drove me crazy because it was just a big box. I was basically waiting for the time to stumble acorss the perfect set of legs that I didn’t have to pay too much for and so I found this lovely little bookshelf with the perfect legs.
This weekend I had the time to remove the legs and clean them up a bit. Now, they’ve got a new little home on the cedar chest.
Cute, right? Honestly, I feel like the original base looks much better but since there really wasn’t a way to keep it, the little tapered bun feet are perfect!
It totally changes the way that the piece looks and how it fits into the living room. I’m pretty happy with it.
What do you think?
