When I saw this antique trunk with original blue milk paint my heart skipped a beat!
I was in love :)
I brought it home, scrubbed it inside and out and knew just where I wanted to put it.
My husband is an antique collector, but just doesn't get primitives. My boys really don't get it either. But they all relented and let me put it in my place of choice - in front of the couch in the family room. After a day or so they realized it needed a pad on top so they could put their feet up on it. I just happened to have a wonderful patched feedsack gifted from my sister-in-law. So I stuffed it and sewed it up. Voila!
Now I have a question for you...
My husband thinks I over paid for it, so I am wondering what you think is a fair price for my trunk? Please post a comment on this post or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Trunk" in the subject line.
Next Wednesday, November 16th, I'll pick a random winner for:
On Friday, my sister and I are heading to central Illinois for the primitives shows! I can't wait! If I find lots of goodies, maybe I'll throw in a treasure or two with the pillow ;)
Is anyone else heading to Arthur & Arcola?
