Trunks, Trunks, Trunks! Look at these great trunks we found, it seemed to be our theme for the day. It was our first treasure hunting day in the new truck, and we refused to come home until it was full. I let Cassie drive. She didn’t run over any yard salers, but she insisted on parking in the north 40 because turning around seemed to be challenging, so we got our workout for the day.
We just love trunks, they can be repurposed into so many different things. Be sure to check out my guest blog on Holy-Craft (www.holy-craft.com) next wednesday for a fun way to dress up an old footlocker. And check out the great little suitcase that is going be so fun to repurpose into a wall mounted storage cabinet, perfect for bathroom storage, jewelry, or spices in the kitchen.
The dresser was a donation (thank you Ashley), and we had to purchase this desk because it matched. This will be a fun project to do this winter for a child’s room, thinking pink and soft grey. And definitely new hardware. The chalkboard might be added in, painted to match, or maybe the little shelves.
The day would not be complete without our load of miscellaneous pieces. The great antique coffee table will be beautiful once it is upcycled with contemporary colors. The globe stand looks a little sad, but the price was right (free), and the parts will be great for adding to other projects.
