Whenever I have a chance, I love to browse at my local Goodwill store, or actually, any thrift store....yard sales too! I have found some amazing treasures over the years. There are certain things I look for, but really, you never know what you might find.
When I saw this old decoupaged trunk sitting on the shelf, I must tell you...my heart leaped as I quickly snatched it up!
I don't know the history or stories behind this old trunk, but I do know someone spent hours cutting out magazine images and carefully decoupaged each one covering the entire trunk.
The inside too!
I love the old latches and they all still work perfectly! I really wish I knew how old this fabulous trunk is...probably well over 100 years...vintage for sure!
Not only was I delighted to find this awesome treasure, but the minute I saw it, I knew just the perfect use for it. I'm going to use it to display my art prints at art shows. It has tons of charm, it's the perfect size, and even decoupaged inside! I'll keep the top open and place my prints inside. Perfect, I love it!
And on that note...for all my Georgia friends, here's information about an upcoming event I'm participating in....
For now, try visiting your local Goodwill store, you never know what treasures might be waiting for you :)
