I was looking for something big with a lid like a trunk to store my hats and mittens. I have a hat and mitten thief living under my roof. Chewed a puff ball right off the top of my favorite hat the other day. Hence the need for a lid.
I'm not sure what this was originally used for (wood maybe?) but I love it for my purposes!
I'll try to get better pictures of this soon but I'm so proud of my little DIY, I had to share! This cute little desk was a not so cute peach color. I painted it green and then added the faux bois finish on the top. It took a while but I love how it turned out. Now I need to find stuff to put above my desk. I'm thinking a fun little collage thingy with vintage prints and frames etc. Anyone want to come help? The bookcase used to be where the desk is but I think it works really great turned to the side to create this little nook.
The lighting over here is gross. I hate the lights that are in my hallway (next home improvement thing to do!). It doesn't look quite this... yellow-y and garish in person.
That's it for now! I'll be sure to show you once I have some stuff on the wall!
