She’s got legs, she knows how to use them.

This long-forgotten old chest was hiding a secret.  And when Chelsi opened it up and peeked in for the first time, she made a startling discovery.  There were a pair of legs inside!   That’s right, table legs!  This wasn’t a chest after all, it was a table!  Whew! Did I scare you? 
Well, don’t be scared, because now it looks fantastic.  I love the new appliques she chose for the spot where the disintegrating needlepoint had been, they look like they’ve always been there!  See more on her blog TwentyNine Magnolias.
