Craftsman Decorative Trunks

The Story of a 1925 Craftsman Cottage in Mississippi

“A collection of vintage mirrors hang grouped in our bedroom, and an armoire built by my daddy and Ben from a door that was in my grandfather’s barn, houses his clothes. We found the old painted cedar chest at a flea market in Meridian, Mississippi. The bed linens are mismatched textures in shades of white and cream. 2 antique cameos sit perched on an old door frame above our iron bed.”


This photo is my inspiration. I have just bought a similar trunk at an auction and am in the process of rennovating it. Will post before and after photos once my photographer wakes up!


How to preserve the bark on a tree stump. Great when used for wedding materials you wish to keep afterwards!
