I'm in one of those moods, you know the one, when you have the urge to move things around a little.
I've just brought this in here.
It's been in the garage since we moved in and I hated it being in there. It had to come out. This is the trunk that my great-grandfather brought all his worldly possessions in when he came to Australia from Ireland so it's a little piece of our family history. Can you imagine having to fit everything you own into one of these to move to a new country!
It should never have been left in the garage but we didn't think it fitted in with all our white here, and new furniture so it just sort of languished in there (it was with friends though, our chiffonier is still in there, alongside a 1920's wardrobe and more!) until we could find a home for it. But it's been playing on my mind, so here it is for now, right smack bang in the middle of the room.
This is what was here before.
And looking at that photo again, I think the white table actually looks nicer, but I just can't put this trunk back in the garage!! Maybe upstairs would better?
The girls are watching Playschool so I've got half an hour up my sleeve to play with it!!
Have a great day x
