Wicker Trunk

Remember this trunk in the guest room of the Southern Living Idea house I shared last week?   Here it is in case you missed that post….

southern living house 2012 108


I was lucky to find that truck at Ikea when we went later that day and happily loaded it in my buggy!    At $59.00 I thought it was a great buy and although I didn’t have an exact spot in mind where I’d put it, I subscribe to the notion that you should buy what you love for your home, and you’ll find the perfect spot for it!    When I go back to Ikea I’m going to buy another one to use in one of the guest rooms (just as soon as I get it cleaned out – you could call “Hoarders” right now and I’d qualify!!)…..I want to use two twin beds with this truck in between.

Anyhooo, here’s where it landed at my house:



I love it!  (I don’t know why my floors look so red…they aren’t red at all).    I shopped my house and used things I already had so this new vignette didn’t cost me anything



Love the strap



You can’t really tell but this trunk is huge!   It will provide some good storage for me



My nephew sent me these antlers from some of his collection….I love free!

And here are more of those free antlers:







What a busy bee I’ve been…I made a skirt for under my kitchen sink (promise I’ll share) and I’ve repainted my porch bench a gorgeous neutral color.      I’ll be sharing both projects in the next week or so.

Next weekend we’re having my mama’s birthday at the lake….she’ll be 92!    A lady at her assisted living cottage turned 100 this past week!!!     Then I’m leaving on Sunday to spend a week at my BFF’s place at the beach!   

Toddles Poodles!

Love it. I would kill to have an IKEA within a decent mile radius. Sigh

Love the trunk Judy...almost bought it last year when I was at Ikea, but really didn't have the perfect spot for it:( Have a fun time at the beach...it was beautiful there today...just a tad bit windy.

Love your new trunk Judy, I was looking at them online. Your vignettes are beautiful!!

I love your trunk! The vignette you created on top is perfect on it. Also, after I read your sign-off, Toodles Poodles, I had a flashback of my childhood. At bedtime, my mom would tuck me in and we'd say Toodle Poodle to each other. I just thought it was some made up phrase. Ha!

Oh that trunk is wonderful! Not only beautiful, but boy could I use it for the storage...it would be filled in a heartbeat! Great find!

I love the texture of the truck. Do you know what material the truck is made out of? Would love to know.
