Ceder Blanket Chest

One of my clients from Hilton Head Island had a ceder chest, her father had built some 50 years earlier. The chest had numerous scratches and gouges, and the stain had faded badly.

She asked me to paint a great blue heron and egrets, with a Low Country marsh back drop on it, as she shared a love  of these with her father.

When I was loading the chest into my car, she told me that her father had been suffering with advanced stage of cancer and not expecting to live long. She wanted to show it to him before he passed away.

I have met many wonderful client over the years who have entrusted me with refurbishing pieces of furniture. As they have explained their desires, I have quickly realized I am not dealing with a mere piece of furniture, but someone's precious memories - treasures that cannot be replaced. That why I never take any job, large or small, lightly. I do my best to satisly my client.
