It’s been a while since I talked about hope chests, but I thought I’d pull a bunch of my favorite pins of Pinterest and give you some inspiration for this Wednesday. This fall weather has been glorious… though I came down with a cold this week, which has offset my usual fall mood. xD Well, ’tis the season for colds, right?
Anyways… here we go.
Part of my favorite parts of hope chests are the kitchen. I haven’t been hope chest sourcing for a while, but I still love looking at the inspiration for my future kitchen! I love all the blue and white… such a softie when it comes to those two color combinations. Her kitchen is so pretty! (link above)
Another favorite part about hope chests is the adorable little baby clothes!! *drools*
I know I’ve heard some people talk about how hard that is if you aren’t blessed with children, however, I’ve been adding things that I’ve found at antique shops (vintage baby clothes are. so. cute! Plus they last forever because of how well-made they are) and thrift stores, for a hopeful ‘one day’ that I will have my own kiddos. If I don’t, it’s always been on my heart to foster/adopt. But honestly, only God knows! Isn’t this dress so cute? You can find it on Etsy on the link above.
The actual hope chest is a dream for me, since I don’t have a real hope chest yet (just a plastic box right now filled with things haha). I’m not sure what exact style I’d like, but something cute for sure. It’s hard to find posts on hope chests but I loved this woman’s thoughts on them.

I’ve been trying to brainstorm more ideas for hope chests lately. The basics are always kitchen things and items you want to pass down to your children, but I’d love to know what other girls are putting in theirs. Right now I have mainly baby clothes, haha!
What sorts of things are in your hope chest? What sorts of things would you like to add?
