living in an extremely 'vintage' apartment surrounded by hand-me-down furniture, can really get a creative person down. so i decided that i wanted to spruce existing pieces up, and in the future, refurbish old inexpensive pieces i find online.
my first project?
an existing 80's tin trunk i found at an antique store three years ago. it was black, rusty, beat up and dented - and the paper inside was curling and falling apart.
i really love army green and thought the trunk would look great in that color - feminine yet tough at the same time. it took me days to decide on a fabric... but when i finally did, i was so excited.
the result? a cottage-chic storage chest :]
the kittens seem to like it - but do you?
