A perfect marriage of form and function, this traditional hope chest is as useful in the den, dining room or hall as it is in the bedroom. The project is great for extra linens, but the large storage compartment and generous drawer work just as well for games, CDs, DVDs, scarves and mittens, table linens or almost anything else. And the handsome Craftsman style complements any decor.

If you adhere to these hope chest plans, the hope chest measures 36 inches long by 24 inches tall by 21 inches deep.
