Hand me Down

This cedar chest was given to me as an engagement present in 1970.

It survived eight moves that included five state to state transfers.  Then it rested comfortably for over 30 years in one location. 

Sometimes it had to be disguised to blend with the decor.

When my daughter became engaged I thought it would be nice to pass it on to her.  To make that a more welcome present I updated it by painting the bottom and having the padded top reupholstered.

 It took to the makeover with dignity and grace.
