So, although it is nearing my bedtime, I wanted to share with you the FINAL product of my first estate sale find. Last winter my boyfraaaand and I stopped at an estate sale in Uptown. Although these are a little sad, they had some amazing finds. I was currently on a mission to find a trunk. I always wanted one, I think they are totally underutilized these days. So after a little digging we found this gem in the basement and snatched it right away:
There is a piece of metal behind there linking the two strips together. To hide this mess and beef up the strength of the handles I wrapped rope around them and painted it black (because I obviously only have hot pink rope handy!)
Sanded (and sanded....and sanded....and sanded....) and then varnished all of the wood, and spray painted the rest black and here is the final product!
Now onto my next project, involving the following stump my father and I rolled up our hill...care to take a shot at what I'm going to turn it into?!
