I have a nice sea chest which recently came home to roost. It was a gift from my husband-to-be for our first Christmas together and there's a great deal of sentimental value to it. I no longer had use for it here (it was stored in the attic) so my son had taken it to his apartment. When he didn't need it anymore and asked what to do with it I said to bring it back - I'm not ready to throw it out yet, despite its worn condition. That piece will find a place of honor in my bedroom after I put some padding on the top and cover it with fabric - a nice storage space that can double as an ottoman. The room isn't terribly big so it's going to be a pretty tight fit, but I'll finally have a place to read or watch TV other than my bed. I can't wait.
I still need a chair...and maybe a floor lamp. And then I just need to put it all together. Sometimes its the little things that make us the most content.
