New Life for a Well Used Trunk
rugrats running around this place all the time, it held up pretty well.
At least when you consider the fact that it's been used as a blanket box, a toy box, a boat, a car, a house, a spaceship and anything else a wee one can imagine sitting inside of.
Not to mention the fact that it just happens to be the perfect height for a little seat or a stool for peeking out the window to watch the big kids playing.
Obviously it was in desperate need of a little attention. So I ripped off the wicker, asked my husband to brave the bitter cold and retrieve the staple gun from his work truck, thanks babe, and got to work.
I filled the spaces with some green foam I had lying around, I knew I saved that stuff for a reason, it really needs a solid piece of wood or something, but I didn't have any of that lying around. Hopefully no one needs to peek out the windows any time soon.
The fabric is a really cool shimmery sage stripe, it's from my Aunt who's an interior designer and always has leftovers for me.
I did most of the work while the kids were in bed, but I did have one little helper today when I reattached the lid.
He is now guarding the box that he worked so hard on from his baby sister's behind, because, well, it's still the perfect height for a little seat and now it even has a cushy top.
It looks pretty good I think. I may touch up the wicker on the bottom, but maybe not.
