Although I love to paint and re-do vintage pieces, I do like a
"good story" behind a piece too.
My father found yet another great and free piece for me. It is an old footlocker trunk. I was going to paint it up really cute, but the history and originality of the piece drew me in and I have decided to keep it as is.
Remeber back in the day when states were abbreviated with 3 or 4 letters rather than the 2 we use now. I totally for got that CT used to be Conn. Love that the address was handpainted on the top of the trunk and shipped like this.....
