My daughter just moved from a high rise apartment in Montreal -
In the garage of that building there was sort of a " free cycle " situation - where people would leave things down there that they no longer wanted and it would always be gone the next day.
This trunk was left down there and she snapped it up for Mama !
It was on wheels - perfect - except that most of it was still in it's raw state of plywood
Except for the 2 top inserts which look like this - ( and which I would never remove - I'm not one to rewrite history !!! ) I don't know what that blue corner is from - but it's staying too
But I DID give it a white wash all over
It's the perfect storage for the front ( enclosed ) porch - outside Christmas decor or even to store boots and such during the summer !
And nestles under the console table I placed in front of one of the windows perfectly !
I meant to have the other side of this area complete by the weekend - but it was so oppressively hot that I would have expired had I attempted it !
It was almost 100 degrees with the humidity....................I can take the heat but the humidity? It feels like trying to breathe with weights laying on top of your body - it's just horrible !
Bit I DID get the blinds up on the window - and I covered the foam on the built in benches with blankets from Ikea ( the little pillows came from there too ) I got an exceptional deal on the foam !
And at least one side is done - that's better than no side, right?
Work begins on the deck today - the posts are going in !
And Tuesday my new stove gets delivered
And Wednesday the foundation goes down for the deck
And Thursday the actual planks get laid.............
Well we'll discuss that on Friday's chat ( about this & that )
Have a wonderful day everyone !
