I had a great day today, hunting for treasures. My treasures are not gold, but of the vintage variety. This Vintage Blue Trunk has to be one of my favorite finds of all time.
At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to love the old blue paint. In fact, I toyed with the idea of painting it white, or navy blue.
But as I began to put it together with some of my other favorite things, I started to change my mind.
I love the worn down paint.
I love that it has rust around the hinges.
I love the dings and scratches and chips.
When I added some fresh lilacs to the mix, I began to love it even more.
Someone even carved their initial “N” into the wood above the lock.
I find it charming.
I was temped to carve my initial there too, but I didn’t. My kids were watching. That wouldn’t be a good example for them. But, I was really tempted. I even had a jack knife in my pocket.
I controlled myself today, but perhaps I won’t tomorrow.
I am going to be spending a lot of time sitting out on this porch this summer.
