Terrific Trunks!

I think I might love old trunks almost as much as I love old windows. You can do so much with a trunk. Consider this beauty found at Decoist:

Or this trunk/seat found at Soft Shell Crafts:

Today’s project came in a little smaller, just over 18 inches. This beauty was found on eBay for an affordable $10. It’s a doll trunk just the right size for hanging all the clothes we made a few weeks back.

Like I said, this trunk is small. It is perfect for our Journey Girl loving daughter. My mom took this trunk and gave it a face-lift. She painted it Kate’s favorite bright blue. With the drawer on the bottom to store hats and shoes, (yes, these dolls come with accessories), and a handle for easy transport, Kate is ready to play doll with her best friends.

Since this post is well before Christmas I’ll have to ask you all to keep it hush hush. This is a gift from her grandparents.
