Treasure Chest Pics to Share

It has been such a long while since I have posted!  We have been busy since early August with some home reno’s, and our main floor is not quite finished yet.  Just some tile in the entry ways and the last bit of baseboard to go.

We have been hauling furniture back out of the other levels of the house tho, and we decided to move the cedar chest down into the living room to serve as a viewing seat for the cats.  Lucky cats!  Kelsey likes the new perch, and Charming likes having the loveseat to himself!

We bought this cedar chest when we lived in Ontario, stripped it down to the original walnut exterior, and then wax finished it.  What do you think – pretty nice for $100!

Most of my little cross stitch ornaments, smalls, and the lovely gifts I have received from other stitchers are stored inside.
