Vintage Trunk

So, in my last post I begged, bribed, kindly asked for you, my readers to respond to a little, painless survey. Not so many of you took the plunge. If you want to boost my confidence, take the survey. Click here. Last chance to enter and win the popcorn. Giveaway ends Sunday, Jan. 9th.

I am constantly thinking about our tiny home and how we can make it our own. You know, make it ours, more JD and Mollie like. As a renter, it is difficult to put our own stamp on this little box we call home. We are beginning to like the vintage feel more and more. When we buy a home someday we would prefer an older home with some original character. Maybe some exposed brick or wooden beams? Who knows.

Last Saturday I was scrolling through craigslist and when this beauty popped up on the screen, I was quick (less than 3 minutes) to ask JD what he thought about it and contact the seller with hopes that it was still available.

Call it my lucky day because it still was. We buzzed into DC before church and picked up our new vintage trunk. It's a little beat up and worn in, just the way i like it. It's a greenish turquoise color. Not sure if I will keep it this color or sand it down and go with another. White maybe?Oh, I almost forgot to mention the best part, the price!! It was a steal. For this solid wood trunk, I only paid $25.00. Can't beat that.

Still not exactly sure where it will go or what purpose it will serve. I'll be back with a trunk update in a few weeks.

  1. it would be good for holding blankets and things. when we lived in our apt we used a large basket to hold all of our snuggle blankets in the living room. or maybe games and things if you have any? good deal! can't wait to hear about what you do with it!
