I was at a yard sale on the street behind our home and asked the lady what she was asking for it. When she said $20 I scooped it up, no bargaining required. It is cedar lined and really well made.
The little envelope attached has the original Lane love chest key inside.
I really don't have a good spot for this hope chest/blanket box in our home so I will be selling it. I was considering painting it but first I will see if it sells in the current wood finish. It is in really good condition.
Today I picked up some great frames for $1 each, and a trio of mirrors for $1 for all 3. The frames and mirrors have a date with some paint in the near future.
I hope you are having a great weekend, and for my fellow Canadians, what are your plans for this long Victoria Day weekend? My boys are camping at some 4-H friends' farm (only 10 minutes away) and hubby and I are getting a few items checked off our to do list.
Edited May 25, 2012: This piece has sold.
