I posted last week about the very, very old chest…Well, turns out I was right about the age! Saundra in Wisconsin was reading my blog and was amazed that there was a picture of a chest almost identical to the one she inherited from her husband’s grandmother. She believes her piece originated from Finland and dates from 1900. Fascinating! She is getting hers worked on by a carpenter and painted. I will post a pic of it when she sends it along! In the meantime, here is my french country yellow and blue farmhouse chest…I just am so happy with the way it turned out. The yellow really compliments the thick golden top that really stands out now after being refinished… I painted the interior blue… and it is all nice and clean and ready to go to a new home. Hopefully its new home will appreciate it and treat it with the respect every beautiful old piece deserves!
