Cedar Hope Chest

It all started with a pile of 100-year old cedar siding reclaimed from a house near Stratton, Vermont that a contractor was going to use for a bonfire. (Yeah. I sorta freaked out when I heard that.)

The salvaged cedar became an accent wall.


Then a waterfall ceiling/wall.


And it’s in the process of becoming a custom door.


And I had enough left to make a 5′ long cedar hope chest.


(Every piece of this is repurposed, from the fabric seat to the super comfy memory foam bench to the cedar siding that smells incredible to the hardware to the red barn wood accent pieces.)



This is the gift that keeps on giving. I feel like I had a few loaves and fishes that kept multiplying. And continue to do so.

And I just realized I have enough cedar to make ANOTHER hope chest.



Cedar hope chest: please email me with the size you are interested in (between 2-5 feet) and I’d be happy to give you a quote!
