Description: Kate from Centsational Girl hacks it again. (Thanks Gina, for the tip off)
She carted home a 6-drawer TARVA chest in pine. Besides priming and painting, Kate added some touches to elevate the basic Tarva design. 1½” x ¾” inch pieces of wood are added to the legs on the sides for more definition.
For the panels, she trimmed screen moulding with a miter saw. Blue burlap is cut to size and fastened with a light spray of adhesive. It is then secured on all sides with the painted trim and small brad nails every 12 inches. The final touch are silver ring pulls.
Quite a transformation and totally reinvented with a modern look!
