Whimsical Wednesday - TRUNKS and CHESTS (of the Furniture Variety)

In celebration of my current fascination with trunks and chests (of the furniture variety - but you might not be surprised what comes up when you google "Painted Chest")...I've decided to dedicate this Wednesday to the exciting storage vessel that we call the chest!



 Myriac Circus Storage Chest 

Trunk Chest














Treasure Chest - Bookcase Furniture

Metal Trunks - Maisons du Monde

Trunk Hampton - Maison do Monde
I also like the room around this trunk...

USA Trunk Stamps - Maison du Monde
I'm not particularly in love with this one, but I thought it was kind of humorous to see how other countries (I'm assuming this is a French company from currency and language on site) see the USA - "California," "Team," "Academy."

1761 German Wheel Chest (not restored) - Fischer-antics

Garden Storage Trunk - Trunks and Chests Store


 
Antique Handmade Oak French Country - Eurolux on Ebay

Antique French Oak Wedding Chest - Les Antiquites Maison on Ebay (If you want it, better act now, it's on sale for only $11,145.60 - too bad they only have 1, or I'd buy one for each of us, right?)

Antique European Folk Blanket Chest c1800 - One of a Kind Antiques

Quite a range of available styles...some I like better than others.  For some reason, I didn't come across any of my painted chests (of the furniture variety). Maybe if I painted my chest, errr  my trunk...uuummm, my furniture with more pizazz, I'd have more luck?  (Teehee...I crack myself up - that's what happens when you've been up since 3:30am because your screaming, teething 11-month-old wakes up your 2 year-old...I'm sure many of you can relate!)

I adore trunks! I have one upstairs in my bedroom and have been looking for the perfect one for our living room to "hide" my 3 year old's toys. I can totally relate with the sleep deprivation... My 3 year old doesn't seem to want to sleep at all lately - at least not normal hours. The last two nights he's been up until midnight or later. UGH!

What a fun post. I can only imagine what else popped up when you searched for "painted chest". Too funny. I think my favorite is the antique folk blanket chest...love the painting.
