What's the difference between a blanket chest and a hope chest? Organizer Julie Bestry asked this, and it seems there really isn't much difference. Take a look at these lovely options, and see what you think.
The hope chest above was made by Fine Ideas Furniture; go there for custom handcrafted furniture by Dan Rieple.
And this stunning hope chest, another custom product, comes from MapleArt, in Canada. If you go to MapleArt's web site, you can see another remarkable piece that's quite different.
Don't want to go custom? Take a look at the Julia Hope Chest Company.
Finally, you could get a very different style of hope chest from Sticks Art. This particular chest is significantly wider than most of the ones on offer - 61 inches vs. the more normal 35 inches.
