sea chests

I've been making sea chests!


A couple of full sized sea chests with rope beckets.

This one's a little smaller, like a carpenter's tool chest or a seaman's ditty box for small things.

As is this one, which has a canted front.  This one surprised me by becoming my favorite.  I think it's the distressed paint.  It reminds me of our family cottage in the mountains where we used to go to every summer.  It was a very rickety old place, but I had so much fun there.  The outside walls were this same green.

Some are still available at my Etsy, honeyandbee!

I love them, and heard mutterings from little George that he would like one, so that he can join the RN like his Dad. :D I'll get round to your etsy around christmas.
