It's Hearfelt Creations Wednesday!

My favorite day of the week and I am so excited to share this project with you!  First though, OMGosh did everyone see the fabulous projects posted this week!  So much inspiration posted in one place... if you don't know what I'm talking about just check out all the GORGEOUS samples created by the DT team again this week.  I am just so impressed by all my team mates! 

I just LOVE how this chest turned out!  I had gotten this chest from Kaiser craft in a Swirlydoos kit a while back (months ago) and I was so excited to get it.  I got my box and though OK... it was flat and all in pieces, now I'm no carpenter so I was a little scared.  I started painting the pieces... dreaming of how it would look when it was completed.  I painted it, distressed it and pieced it together and that is it... that is how it sat for a few months... I knew I wanted this to be special but had no idea what I wanted to do with it.  I was looking through my cupboards last week and saw this unfinished project in my shelf (after being hit with a twinge of guilt) and it hit me!  I figured out how I was going to finish it and of course I knew it was meant to be a HC project!  Here is what I did...

The directions to put this chest together are on the HC blog... including a how-to for all the little handmade embellies on here!  Here are a few top views so that you can see how I finished up this project.


Well once again I truly hope you found a little inspiration in my project.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if you want any additional info on how this piece was put together!
