Good luck Katey! We here at Beekeeper's Cottage in Leesburg, VA have done it again! Each year we have a young staffer who is off to start their first year at college, we give them a restored vintage trunk. So fun! It's a great stylish space saver for those petite dorm rooms. And it's become a wonderful tradition and something all of us creatively contribute to with joyful hands. Here are a few pictures of Katey and her trunk.
Tim Holtz's papers for the inside lining.
An old belt for the missing handle and leather bits.
Ribbon as straps to provide a whimsical closure
And lots of LOVE!
