Bel Joeor Sale and Giveaway!

Amanda from Bel Joeor is hosting a big sale on her Etsy site and a giveaway on her blog!  She makes beautiful saddle covers and bags.  I highly recommend checking out her shop and entering her contest.  

DIY Project!

My grandfather gave me an old racing trunk that I decided to fix up this summer.  I think it came out pretty neat; it is not perfect, but it looks pretty!  :-)


Starting point


This is on the underside of the brush box.  I love the history!  This is not my grandfather; he bought the trunk back in the early 70s at a farm auction.
Adding paint...

Original hardware
Ooooh looking better....


I love this color!  It's called "Good Karma".  :-) 

Painted hardware
Finished!  




Back in the barn!
