Treasure Chest

I was so excited to have my first steamer trunk.  What is commonly referred to in our home as a treasure chest.  I originally was going to use it to store lap blankets and the such in but since we recently moved our family room to the basement it has a new purpose.  It will hold real treasure.  My photo blankets that my mom made me last year for Christmas.  The ones that hold the sweetest photo’s of my children on them.  Boxes of photographs and other precious items will be stored in the trunk.  As much as I love steamer trunks, there are far and few between that I would consider attractive.  So…. once again it was time to paint!  Here she is sitting in what used to be the niche for the TV, only a very small part of my new living room makeover.

I wish the pictures were brighter but it’s snowing today… yay me.

Isn’t she pretty white?!  I just adore this piece.

Here is a bit of her detail up close.  It took the paint very well.  She is metal, wood and canvas.
Pillow 1
You might recognize her in this photo when I was displaying my pillows.  I think anything looks beautiful when it’s sitting on her!

Absolutely beautiful. The white really pops and you have the perfect nook for it.

Take care,
