Vintage Cedar Lane Hope Chest. I have this exact chest from my mom and its in mint condition. This spring we're going to paint it and make a cushion bench top for it. Not crazy about the interior cedar smell
We got a Lane Cedar chest simiar to this one at a thrift store. It's awesome. I've always wanted one. Now our wool clothing will be safe all summer and smell good when we are ready to use them again this Fall and Winter.
Does anyone remember these?? I never got one, but I still have one (from my older sister, I think) LANE MINI CEDAR CHEST; little boxes given out by the thousand by furniture companies across the country to high school girls. Many were handed out during the 1950s and 1960s to girls at graduation, with the hope that they would be inspired to buy the larger size, which cost hundreds of dollars.
