New Addition To Dining Room

 I recently found this little antique asian chest for our dining room. I think it's adorable
and it adds another place for storage.





Close up of one of the napkins I got at the Vintage Marketplace
in Rainbow, California. Another Marketplace is scheduled for the
 9th and 10th of September of this year.

Everyone is telling me it's off scale, but I love it and I'm
keeping it. Hanging above it, is the vintage original
watercolor in it's original faux bamboo frame. I  
bought it at a consignment store for $42.00.

Close up of vintage watercolor.
Sorry about the reflection in the glass.

That chest is a treasure. I've seen they are making some chests in that style at Ikea. Not the same as the real deal but they are smart to try.
