Hello New Friend

Look what just happened to find it's way into my house over the weekend.... ANOTHER vintage trunk!



I found it beneath a whole pile of junk at a garage sale just down the road... the best $5 I've spent in a long time!  I'm going to stencil Leo's name on the front and he can use it as a toy box (... just as soon as I can figure out how to make the rusted edges a little more child-friendly!!!).  I swear every child that enters this house needs a double Tetanus shot!

Oh tetanus, the dead arm needle!! I'm sure there is a 70y.o. grandfather out there with ALL the answers to hinges, rust & safety. I have been known to drive things like this up from Canberra to Sydney for my FIL to fix, so i don't damage it & of course, i lack the tools & skills. He spends half the time telling me to not buy crap (crap = gorgeous vintage bargain) then does an amazing job & finish, with a frown of course. Love Posie
