The Musical Trunk gets the Perfect new Home in the basement

I think one of my very favorite things is moving furniture around my house and giving it new life somewhere else. It’s so much fun! You might remember during my bedroom makeover post, how I mentioned that the trunk at the foot of our bed just wasn’t vibing with me? This trunk – the one […]
