Trash to Treasure find: Rattan Chest

The excitement I felt when my husband and I found this on our way to the show Monday.


Husband:you see that?
Me:I want it.
Husband:what you think?
Husband:what are you going to do with it?
Me:Get it! 

There’s a house around the corner for sale and they sat this beauty outside.   At first glance I thought it was similar to my jewelry box, but it’s not.  This chest is taller, rattan (overlay) and there aren’t doors on the side that open.


It’s in mint condition and it looks as if it hasn’t been used much.  For now I have it here in my living room/dining room area.  Considering storing napkin rings or something else.  I move our furniture around A LOT and who knows this can be in someone’s bedroom tomorrow.  This was truly a treasure for ‘me’ to find.
