When my local thrift stores started cooling down with vintage finds, I just stopped shopping, and started gathering old wood instead, so I could make my own ‘old’ stuff.
Do your local thrift stores still carry much vintage?
But am I ever glad this little trunk came home with me during one of those flea market shopping trips!
(you can see what I did with that ammo crate HERE)
I knew right when I purchased the trunk that it would stay with me. The size was too unique to just give it up for a few dollars.
Plus… the colours were PERFECTION. Black, white, wood with plenty of rust.
Nearly as good as coffee! (nearly)
The perfect little trunk got snatched up quick. After a good scrubbing with soap and water, swivel coasters were attached to the wood strips underneath.
Guess the same thing could happen here, but hopefully he / they learned that my precious junk is a ‘delicate matter of utmost importance.’
Everything gets a coffee test. In case you’re just learning the ropes here.
The trunk looked so chic with the twig garland and all those other junky relics.
This old lantern was another amazing find I couldn’t part with. The glass is super thick, and wavy. It has a crack, but someone did a great job gluing it together.
Plus, it matched the trunk…
I love the fact that while this perfect little trunk is in front of the summerized fireplace at the moment, it can roll wherever
I have my next coffee fix we desire it to go.
I love easy fixes… that help fuel my own fix.
You can see my other trunk ottoman on wheels here.
Are you also a trunk collector? What have you done with yours?
