I went to the shop 2 weeks ago and found another army trunk in fair shape sitting in one of the garages. I had seen it before many times but this time I got a vision that it needed to be painted and stenciled, it was ready for change. I know the feeling, I am thinking that this coming spring change will be visiting me as well. I am not sure but I am looking forward to a time of new beginnings. The last of my seven children will graduate this May and I will have made it to the finish line as a Mom as far as High School graduations go. Yeah. Good job kids!
Anyway, I loaded the trunk into my Rendezvous and was on my way home with another piece to paint and love. I decided to paint it off white and the hinges black. I brushed a coat of dark brown glaze over the whole piece and the poly coat. I thought I would make it simple and stencil a saying I have seen on Pinterest that caught my eye.
I painted the inside a khaki green just make it nice and neat and added a chain to steady the open lid.
When you have love you have it all. Something I learned in the group that my husband and I lead on Friday nights is to make sure your reaction to a problem is never more important than the relationship. Exercise your thoughts and actions in love and you will never go wrong!
