Let the fun begin

These chests are my favorite pieces of furniture - I have 3 of them. Most of the time they act like end tables....but when I have company coming....
everything gets tossed inside and all the sudden things look neat! I'm done with the cleaning and Keith and his sister arrived around 6PM. We walked downtown for dinner and drinks and had the best time....and my house is sparkling clean!

I have a chest similar to that and I also put what's on top inside when company comes -- and then forget I put it there!

Fantastic! I love those trunks - my kind of furniture and I love that quilt, too! Beautimous! I think I'll curl up in that chair and snuggle under the quilt in the very clean house.

Enjoying the charm Love, *karendianne.

Nice and tidy, you did well! I've noticed those chests peeking out from under quilts in previous photos (I think) and always admired them. Also love that log cabin quilt on the chair! Dianne B. in England

I like the trunk storage and double duty as end tables!

Enjoy your family and the clean house!

Love the quilt that is displayed on the chair! What a great idea to have trucks to tuck things away that are a bit cluttery part of life...love them!

Aren't you clever!? I could use about 8 or 9 of those chests!

Those trunks are beautiful! I need some of those. And the chair looks pretty cosy too.

That quilt is gorgeous! Could you post a picture of the full quilt, pretty please?

Great idea, but I don't think they make enough of them for all my junk that I would have to hide :-)

What great tables! They are so attractive as well as great hiding places! Wish I had a couple!
