The chest is an authentic Lane cedar chest, made right here in Virginia, with original 1971 certificate and key! Since I was getting the chest for DH to toss his bag onto, I didn't want buy a beautiful new one that I'd obsess over scratches. Anway, I hope I don't offend all of you who really like that inlay on the front of the chest but I really don't like it and it wouldn't work in our bedroom at all. But if you bought it and then decided it needs refinishing- you may want to try the restore a finish.It is easy to use and you might be pleasantly surprised - I have taken off rings from my dining room table that are like the ones on the top of your chest.

And my cedar chest (although in excellent condition) doesn't have the beauty of wood that my mom has on her much older chest.
As you undoubtedly already know, a light sanding inside will restore the cedar, if it has lost its aroma. I sprayed the chest with a primer and then a couple of coats of Rust-Oleum’s Heirloom White. This chest is obviously very well made and your plan to paint it should bring new life and beauty to an old piece of furniture.
