I made this blanket chest for my girlfriend. it was her wish,for our bedroom. It was made with dovetails, all it by hand. Finished with wax,white color with a vintage style for look like a old furniture.

Hice este arcon para mi novia era una peticion que me hizo para nuestro dormitorio. Se hizo con colas de milano, todo el arcon esta hecho a mano. Acabado con cera, color blanco, con un estilo vintage para que parezca un mueble viejo.
