Dont use soap (detergent) and water, because wood must not get wet. You should wash all the surfaces in order to remove as much grime as possible. - The next step is to apply a primer. It is important to select a good one. Try to buy one that says no sanding is needed. A cheap primer may not adhere properly even if you sand slightly.If you use a cheap primer,allowe it to dry overnight. Whatever primer you use,it is better to gently sand the surface, to create a smooth surface to apply paint onto.
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.
The Dower Chest, better known as a Hope Chest or Blanket Chest in present time, is referred to by the Pennsylvania Dutch as Ausschteier Kischt. This piece of furniture is the most cherished and most representative of the Germanic Immigrants who came to live in Pennsylvania during the late 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries.Young girls between the ages of eight to ten were given Hope Chests inscribed with their names and usually the date of presentation. This storage chest was filled with household items that the girl made, was given or purchased in anticipation of her future marriage. On her wedding day, this completely filled Hope Chest was proudly placed in the "Wedding Wagon" to be taken to her new home. Items would have included blankets, bed linens, baby clothes, quilts and some family heirlooms.
Finally, a media cabinet may be what you need to organize your CDs and video games, or to store your television or computer. Like the mule chest, there is no set design for the media cabinet. Many are geared toward teens while some give you a stylish, sophisticated place to discreetly store electronics and accessories.
