Just a Few Days Early...

Andy got his first birthday gift a few days early. I am usually very anti this practice, but, seeing as it will help get the house clean for his party, I went with it!!

This trunk was in the closet at my Memere and Peperes. They kept linens in it, and I think it is awesome! It is wood frame with tin outside, and the yellow part has a cool scroll pattern on it. But, it needed a little....ok, a lot of TLC. TLC I can do! We ripped out the old flower contact paper, patched a few holes, put on a child safety hing, added wheels, new paper, and some new paint...
And what did we get, but a treasure chest fit for the sweetest boy in all the land!

Can't you tell he likes it??

You have no idea what joy this brings to me every time I see it. I loved the whole process and can't wait to see the pictures of the two of them inside. Memere and Pepere are smiling. Love you lots, Mom
