during a trip through my attic, we found a green trunk and old window—here’s what we did with them.
after adding a new set of rollers to the bottom of the trunk, I painted it white. it’s perfect in front of the mantle my husband made for me last summer. (this is our tiny family room—I’ve never shown it cuz it's so dark. I had to really lighten the pics-sorry).
here’s the trunk after…
and this is the trunk before the paint job…
I put a skinny tree into a small wooden suitcase and sat it on an old piano stool for height. the topper is a zinc chalkboard sign.
we put 2 hinges on the old window’s top and attached it to a simple shelf.
here’s a pic with the window lifted up---this shows the basic foundation for the shelf-a very easy project. another earlier window project is the leaded glass window in the picture.
the zinc numbers-below and the cash register sign—(25 cents-above pic) were found in a local shop.
I used shower curtains (from tj max) for the window, in this room. they are a wrinkly texture and I love the writing on them.
thanks for looking and have some holiday fun this weekend!
