I’ve had my eye on a chest to both add a design element and store some items that clutter my living room. I was really close to securing one from a neighborhood shyster a few months ago, but something about him didn’t sit right with me, so I let that one pass. So you can imagine my delight when I happened upon this crocodile-skin chest ($10) on a recent lunch-time thrift jaunt.

The interior is a velvety burgundy hue, and it actually is very well maintained.

I want to say the chest is vintage, but I have a feeling it could be a modern-day replica. Either way, I’m a huge fan of the embellishments and chocolatey brown color, as well as the texture provided by the crocodile skin.

Grand total: $10.90
