Before and After : Chest

I am excited to share with you the one of the three pieces that we Rescued, Restored, and Redecorated with the At Home products for the Habitat for Humanity's Annual Toolbox Bash. I shared back in the middle of October on the blog, how I was asked to rescue pieces from the Habitat for Humanity's Restore in Memphis. They have an annual event, The Toolbox Bash, where the three furniture pieces were auctioned off.  

All proceeds directly support Habitat’s mission to eliminate substandard housing throughout the city of Memphis and its surrounding areas. Since 2008, the Tool Box Bash has raised more than $165,000 to help local families achieve the American Dream!

Here is one of the pieces that we choose to restore for the auction.

Chest: Before

I found this chest and absolutely loved its simplicity. I immediately felt it would be great lacquered in the High Performance Spray! I was not sure what color at first but decided that Easton Green would be fun especially for a kids room!

Chest: After

We had such a great time restoring the pieces for the event and I look forward to sharing the other two furniture pieces within the next couple of weeks! 


  1. Looks great!!! What a transformation!

  2. I'm curious about using this lacquer spray product. How many cans of spray paint did this dresser need for this finish? My daughter wants to lacquer her dresser in a white.

    1. This chest took about 3.5 cans because we really wanted to get that shiny high gloss finish
