Map Chest

I love furniture pieces that look like they could tell a good story.


I fell hard for this reproduction map chest to use for our new media cabinet.  At almost 7 feel long, it holds lots of electronics that are necessary, but not cute. So it's all hidden away down below. When the BS meter is at it's highest, we tell friends it's a sea captains map chest..why not?  It looks like this cabinet could tell a good fish tale to me.

It's actually an import from a local furniture store and it suits my style and the new house perfectly. I was drawn to the industrial farmhouse look it has. We made the move from a big box tv to a small flat screen that wouldn't demand too much attention in the room and this chest is the perfect anchor piece as a media cabinet.

There are only actually 3 drawers, the rest are false fronts for doors that open for storage. 



The new place is certainly taking on a charming personality as we continue to unpack and wade through the never ending stacks of boxes.  We are loving it!  

Here are some closer looks at....the details:
