Anyway, I digressed, that's also something I'm notorious for that :) If I could make that smiley bigger right there, it would be HUGE!
SOOOO...about this little project, I had this inspiration one day as I was reading an article in a miniatures magazine, the article was about these people that make room boxes out of trunks and suit cases, etc. I loved the idea so much, I decided I wanted to do one. Well, O crap, two things A) thinking about this now, was it inspiration or copying? I think I just copied their idea. Well whats that old saying, imitation is the best sort of flattery? and 2) How many times have I saw something in my lifetime that I've said I wanna make that? I bet the number is close to our national debt (and that my friends is the beginning and end of a conversation regarding politics with me:). Anyway, I was in Minneapolis about a week or so later and had some time to just shop the thrift stores and junk shops. I LOVE Minnesota for this, maybe cause I know where to go, but I always find what I want. Anyway, in the basement of one of my favorite stores is this little trunk and not only is it perfect...wait for this...it's marked down to $10 from $20! I'm a thrifter, so this excites me like the smell of mash excites my husband (he's a beer brewer :)
Now I've searched and I can't actually find a picture of the trunk before I did anything to it, but I know I took one, but you'll just have to imagine. Anyway, this is the trunk after cut a hole in the side and inserted a window.
I then papered the inside, used some ribbon for base and actually farther down you'll see the trim on the top. I started out to make a french style cafe setting, but then I changed my mind...that happens a lot.
I decided to make it a sexy bedroom.
Here is a better view of some of the furniture. My style is funky, eclectic, shabby. That actually kinda describes me also. W I E R D !
