We love a sturdy wood trunk for storing blankets, bedding and seasonal clothes. They also double up as a coffee table or a landing zone in the entryway or bedroom. We're used to seeing the standard wood trunk in a home but Alice takes hers up a notch with a bit of creativity...Taking a gently used wood trunk, Alice primes and paints it the lightest shade of pale blue. To us, the next step is the most impressive. She hand stencils an outdoor vignette complete with a tree, growing grass and a bird (the effect is nothing less than spectacular). The black silhouette of a tree gives the wood trunk a new life that is inspirational. If you're not an artist by nature, we're thinking vinyl decals or ready-made stencils are the way to go.
