Steamer Trunk Mini-Makeover


The steamer trunk in William's bedroom has been in need of some new knobs. The old ones had broken, and only the tiny center of the knob was left.





Guess what we found at the thrift store for free! Knobs that fit perfectly.

Yay for perfect, free stuff! The pictures of William snuggling with you remind me of advice I received at my very first baby shower, which, obviously, I have never forgotten. She said, "Fill your home with laughter, for children love laughter as they love sunshine." I needed that reminder in my first, very difficult, marriage. Looks like William loves being with you. I'm glad you laugh with him.

The knobs look like they came with the trunk! I'm glad William has a Fisher Price house too-- that was one of my favorite toys growing up. :)

Rachel,
Those knobs were broken when I bought that trunk 35 years ago! They have lasted well.
I like your "mistreatments" of William's windows. Cute! And now you don't need the windows blackened so much for an afternoon nap. :)
Love,
Mom
