Painted Striped Antique Trunk

Painted Striped Antique Trunk

Hi Infarrantly Creative friends! It’s Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs and I’m back to share a simple update to an old trunk that anyone can do. A few weeks ago, I found a beaten up antique trunk at a thrift store for only $7. Yes, $7! I love thrifting! Once cleaned up, it was a little better, but it still needed a wow! Inspired by the latest issue of HGTV magazine, I created a bright, modern take on an old trunk.

5 Ways to Get This Look: Rustic Kitchen

I spotted this kitchen vignette at Liz Marie Blog.  I don’t usually go for a very rustic look, but something about this kitchen made me take a second glance.  I think it would be perfect in a little cottage tucked away in the trees near a lake….or on a sandy beach somewhere.  It’s a kitchen that says, “Stay a while,” isn’t it?

Well, if this is a look that you love, I have good new for you!  You don’t have to pay the price of waterfront property to get a kitchen like this one.  It’s possible to turn the kitchen you have into one that looks a lot like this.  It doesn’t take a big remodel, either–the rustic feel of this kitchen comes from the accessories just as much as it does from the structural elements.
