This lovely painted baby chest is going into “Krysten’s” new baby room. I just love the size of it… it’s almost the size of a small dresser. It actually looks a little bit like a dresser with all those faux drawer fronts and great hardware. As you can image, this lovely Huppé and Frères made […]
This lovely antique cedar hope chest was found in Oakville on “Summer” Heights Trail. A lovely lady named Kim was moving and selling off some items she had inherited from her mother’s home. I really do love these chests and they are harder and harder to find these days.
