before & after.

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?

  1. Can’t say I’m fond of the color (but I’m not much of an army green fan, anyway), but the interior pattern is really unique! Great job, lady! :D

    P.S. I like that the kittehs are in the trunk. So cute and sillies. :)
