Blanket chests may not be considered a necessary piece of furniture to many in this day and age, but they were extremely necessary to families of the past eras. Many young women were given dowry chests to fill with necessary household items. They crafted quilts, blankets, crocheted items, baby clothes and bed linens to name a few. On their wedding day, these blanket chests were proudly placed on the wedding wagon for the newly weds to take to their home. Other young women did not receive a hope chest until their wedding day, but the chests were still filled with the many needed items to run a household.
These Early American Hope Chests were not made with cedar on the inside. Cedar linings and bottoms are the additions of present day craftsmen to their Blanket Chests. This is a favorite feature among buyers since cedar eliminates insect pests and releases a wonderful aroma every time the lid is opened. This fresh smell can be rejuvenated by simply roughing the cedar with small grit sandpaper.
There's a wide range of plastic cupboards available from under 50 offering value for money and a practical solution as they are very easy to keep clean, just give them a wipe down every now and then. It's easy to find storage cupboards and shelving units that match if you want to keep the work area smart and professional looking. Units are self-assembled and many of today's models are fitted together without bolts or screws.
However, the best results are achieved if color spray are used. High quality paints should be used both as the primer and the finish coat. Before you decide on such a way of painting be sure to have an extra, well ventilated room where you would paint your cupboards. It is also very important that you have some experience in painting with color sprays in order to prevent the paint from "running".
