I have had this hope chest as long as I can remember. I feel horrible now because I beat and neglected this antique over the years. There is paint and scratches and dents all over it. Recently, I moved it under a window in the kitchen nook. Unfortunately, our dog has discovered that she can see outside better if she stands on it. It is scratched SO BAD! I placed a long candleholder wrought iron thingamabob on it to stop her from getting on it. I don't know why I never thought to put a cushion on it. Since it is now officially fall, summer stuff is going on sale. So we went to Gardenridge and got some chair cushions! I LOVE the colors and the print!!
One day I plan on painting this a fun color. Maybe turquoise? :)
