This is my favorite resting spot in the loft. Its an old iron chaise lounge and the cushion is covered in this lovely rose-patterned fleece. There is a soft and somewhat tattered embroidered pillow of a little dutch girl with her geese. My friend made me a really nice lap blanket and my little angel sits on top of the suitcases I use as a side table which double as storage.
Till next time ....

These were so dirty and full of dust that I spent a good two days brushing off the dirt and dust and "cleaning" them by rubbing them gently with a pad of fine steel wool. I was amazed at how the steel wool made the graphics come back to life. Then I waxed them with paste wax both to clean off the remaining dirt and to give them a protective seal.
The insides still need some cleaning, but I thought I would leave that to the buyer of these amazing drawers. Each one has a small wooden knob. Some have been labeled with their content, some have numbers and some have nothing at all.
I could not get the cubby hole unit that they came in -- it was literally built right on the barn wall and we were afraid that taking it down would diminish the integrity of the building (it was in pretty poor shape).
I am thinking about building a couple of cubby hole cabinets since I have so many of these drawers.
