You know that place, the one you always drive by tell & yourself you should stop in someday? Maybe they have a catchy name, great signage or cute window displays and it just makes you want to check it out, but you never get around to it? We all have those places. Mine is this crusty old antique store in East Bridgewater near the train tracks which always has some kind of crazy piece of vintage furniture out front . I am always close to causing a car accident when eyeballing their stuff as I speed around the corner, late for something as usual. Well, I finally stopped in because I saw something out there that I could NOT resist, and thus began my latest addiction to antique trunks.
My future coffee table, portable office, or dog bed, who knows? The repurposing possibilities are endless. Its a shame that life is hectic and I can’t give this project the attention it deserves right now, but I can almost assure you that this trunk will make a cameo appearance at a very important national trade show in May. (wink) After that, who knows? By then I’ll probably have ten more. I believe it grew out of my vintage suitcase obsession, this new infatuation with trunks. Something about travel & history that mingles nicely with art & design. Wherever it takes me, at least I know I have room to overpack.
