After Months of looking...

We found a Master Bedroom Chest that we can both live with at

Of Course -


Portomao Chest

We've purchased, and refused delivery of, a chest from Restoration Hardware. Horrid construction - It arrived with drawer glides snapped, drawers not closing, veneer peeling off the top and gouges out of the sides.

Then we found a Kincaid Magna Chest we thought might work; on further reflection we knew it wasn't 'fancy' enough for the cherry furniture that is in the master suite. We spent the next few weeks touring every furniture showroom in Denver; found chests we would consider from inexpensive ($300) to ridiculous ($15,000). Last night, I jokingly told Ken - "Hey, I bet we find the perfect chest where we find everything else - at Costco!" We had a good har de har about that, and then I went on line. And found perfect size chests in a few different pieces. Then I found it! All those weeks, driving around looking, thinking we were looking for the impossible.

Gotta love the Costco.

And that, dear friends, is why I only go to Costco when absolutely necessary.

I do like the one from Kincaid, though. That's very nice. Of course, my bedroom furniture is a combination of IKEA and mum's attic, so anything would be just fine. I don't need to worry about matching. The only thing that matches in my room is my sheets.

Very nice. Between the two of us, I think we keep Costco in good financial form, at least from the Cascades to the Rockies.
