Trunk show

October 1, 2010

Jane spotted this under some garbage bags after we went to the Mexican supermarket for some supplies. Naturally, we wheeled it home atop my bicycle.

Then while dinner cooked itself in the crock pot, I fished out what was left of the paint I had used for my walls, and did a quick (shoddy, but improved nonetheless) revamp of this grand trunk. As ever, it was a pleasure making strokes with the thick milkshakey scent-free zero-VOC paint. Our new trunk now houses winter boots and other unsightlies.

    Love your trunk… what a great find, so practical, a great savings of $$$ and time by finding it rather than building one yourself.

    That is so great! It looks so lovely now, and it was free! That is so cool. Plus it’s not in the garbage – awesome. ;)
