Here are my goodies! The first picture is the trunk as I got it from Freecycle. I love the shabbiness, but felt that it did need a bit of paint. Someone had stencilled tulips on the front that had faded to look more like smudges! Wes definitely did not like it in this shape, although I thought it looked vintage and quite shabby chic!
Next is the cover on the lid after we got the top layer of fabric off. We all like this fabric a lot, but Wes still doesn't think it will match our living room furniture. I think it will be fine; a little variation gives some interest!
Here is the (almost) finished product. I haven't put a handle back on, nor the trim around the edge of the lid. I'm thinking I'll just put a white trim around, keep it simple. I have looked at fabric to re-cover this lid, but I really like this fabric, and it was free, after all. I didn't get it to spend a lot of money on it!
And now . . . the rocker! I just love it! Every time I look at it, it feels like a hug from God! ;) Please excuse the mess around it! We are in the midst of a move!
