Some dear friends of ours are in the middle of adopting a precious little girl with special needs from China, and this antique chest is being auctioned off to help raise money for their cause. So - to all of my followers out there... bid, bid, bid!!! :-)
This is an antique chest made of solid cherry, with four dovetailed drawers that work beautifully. Each drawer has the original antique hardware, and there's a hidden pull-out shelf at the top of the piece - perfect for extra display space or as a writing area. This chest would be lovely as a smaller buffet in a dining room, as a desk in a child's bedroom, as a foyer piece, or as an end table with storage. It's been painted Duck Egg Blue and given a distressed finish, with clear wax for durability. Measurements are 30'' long x 31'' tall x 16'' deep. Starting bid is $75.
To place a bid, click on the picture of the chest in the auction photo album, and put your bid in the comment section under the picture. The silent auction ends July 26th at 9pm.
So, come on folks - head on over to the auction and bid! :-)
