I want it Wednesday

I've wanted one of these since I was a Senior in High School.

See, around here, they are traditional graduation gifts for girls. We were even given a mini one from a local furniture dealer. I had my little one for years, until it got dropped and broke.

But, I want a big one. I want it to sit at the end of my bed. And, I finally have a bedroom big enough to allow one to sit at the end of the bed. I want to fill it with...stuff. Blankets and sweaters and fabric keepsakes.
Have you figured out yet what it is?






Yep, a hope chest.

I have a cedar chest that was my grandma's in my bedroom. I hid all my stuffed animals in there, so fiance wouldn't throw them away :-)

I have one! My brother made it for me in highschool. It's pine (I didn't want everything smelling like cedar) and it's huge. 4' long, 1.5' wide, 2' deep. I *love* it. And, with my current bedroom configuration, it does sit at the foot of my bed.
