Whenever Gabe and I take a road trip, we make it a point to stop at thrift stores and antique shops on the way, just to see what various towns have to offer. We hit the jackpot a few weeks back when Gabe discovered a small field chest underneath a smattering of coffee mugs, kitchen canisters, and salt shakers. (He always looks high and low, over and under at these places, and he is richly rewarded for it.)
It was low and slim, just right for a bedroom nightstand or as end tables in a living room. It had the most appealing pattern on its drawers, and it gave me the idea for our Scales Chest. It has the same size and spirit, with metal mesh panels on the drawer faces for a three-dimensional pattern that glints in the light. It also coordinates with our Scales Dresser.
Dimensions: 24 x 16 x 30 in inches. Imported. Handling Fee is $50.
