Cedar is a wood type which has gained great popularity for the creating of hope chests in more recent times. Cedar is a wood with a huge variance in color, going from a light tan to a brownish red. This gives furniture pieces a 'comfortable' look. Of course the wonderful smell of cedar is also an added attraction. Many wood workers choose to line their hope chests with a thin layer of Cedar, or at least add a layer to the bottoms. The wonderful cedar smell can be rejuvenated by gentle sanding with 200 grit sand paper.
Wood workers and furniture manufacturers in Japan and Denmark have especially found Shaker furniture to be of interest. Many of their artisans have employed the Shaker design elements to create wonderful furniture pieces. The Shaker style has also heavily influenced the modern furniture design principles in both of these countries.
Make a commitment to yourself that you will stay on top of your clutter. You don't want to do all that work and just end up in a mess in a couple of months again. Make it easy on yourself to stay organized by placing baskets around your home so you can stow things in them quickly when you make a decluttering sweep through your home. It's best to keep stray items in one place like a laundry basket rather than stashing them in a drawer or closet to get them out of the way. Once things are placed in an area other than their permanent home, clutter gains a foothold. Keep them in a basket until you get time to walk the basket through your house and put things where they belong.Pennsylvania Dutch Hope Chests
