I Found a Treasure of a Chest

There is a narrow wall (33 inches wide to be exact) between the dining room and the butler's pantry in our house.  I have been looking for an affordable treasure to put there since we moved in three months ago.  Nothing I found at furniture or antique stores met the criteria of being affordable, adorable, and less than 33 inches wide.

Until I came across a Grandin Road catalog in my mailbox.  I noticed a really cute chest in it.  It was slightly different than the one I ended up with.

I went to their website thinking I might order it.  Instead, I ended up ordering this one:

It is called the Bailey Chest.
It was on sale for $179 plus $10 additional shipping.  (I had a free shipping code that covered the rest of the shipping charge.)

For that price, I couldn't lose.  If the wood hadn't lived up to my hopes, I could always paint it.

A week later, it arrived and I am enchanted with it.  The assembly was just screwing in eight screws.
I love the brass hardware too.

Have a wonderful weekend,

  1. This is my first visit to your blog, and I have officially decided you are a bad influence. I saw the chest that you brought in, and have since been devouring the website...and may have found about 10 things I immediately need. Thanks!

  2. Great piece, Eilis! It looks like it fits that space perfectly, too. I've taken to putting the catalogs right in the recycling bin. It is just too tempting especially with Christmas coming!

  3. Isn't it wonderful to find the right piece you have been looking for and at the price you think is good...can't beat that.
    Hugs, Lynnie

  4. Such a great chest, I love the wood tones, it's perfect for that spot...
