Treasure Chest Anyone?

My husband and I were able to go on a date on Saturday afternoon. Well I have been CRAVING to go to the thrift stores to find a fun project. Well it was are lucky day. The whole store was 40% off!!!! So we looked and looked and found 2 fun projects. I will share one of them with you today. This was a great find. Extra storage is always a plus. Here is what I saw...
I immediately had what I wanted in my head. The cost of the trunk at $8.00 I couldn't resist. It would be PERFECT in our office with all the blankets inside. Here is what it looks like now after a little TLC. I LOVE IT!

All I did was remove the outside and recover it with fabric. Added trim to the top and bottom edges, painted the hardware and just like that it was like new. I can't wait to show you what it looks like in my new house. The problem is I won't be there for 8 more weeks. What thrift store finds have you just loved?


  1. Oh my goodness! It's adorable! Great job!

    I saw that you commented at Nester's looking for information on painting a table. I did my kitchen table a few years ago and posted about it last month.

    Here's a link...

    Hope that helps.
