Trash Turned Treasure.

One thing I can always count on to hold true is that good old fashioned saying, one man’s trash is another man’s (or lady’s!) treasure – literally. Ever consider moonlighting as an antique furniture restoration guru? I sure have!

Check out the vintage trunk I found outside the trash compactor at my old apartment complex, about two years ago.  It collected some dust sitting in a garage since then – but, over the holiday, I was finally able to dive in and get my hands dirty.

HALF WAY THERE:

With a chisel, some sandpaper, a hefty rag, stain, paint, and a little love…

…It made the perfect compliment to my new little get-away space!
