Truth be told, I get way to much of a thrill off of a great Craigslist find! Finding the perfect piece, making sure it’s still available and then bargaining is a total adrenaline rush!
This old trunk is one of my FAVORITE finds!
She used to look like this…
And she lived right here in my living room. Her purpose: A coffee table that my husband and boys did not appreciate. They are men and they want function… I am a woman and I want style! Long story short – she lasted almost 2 years and the men now have their way:)
Two cans of Rust-Oleum Summer Squash (ahhhh my favorite yellow)….
and a good distressing with my 3M sanding block was all it took to prepare her for her new home!
I think this will make the perfect toy box and I love how it fits in with the nursery theme! I also love what I replaced her with in the living room but that’s another post:)
Do you have your projects ready? We can’t wait to see what you girls have been working on without your hubby’s this month! Link up on Thursday, April 7th!
