Junk in my Trunk {Nerf Storage}

I know I'm the worst blogger ever. Really. I do. Who goes missing for a month other than a few Facebook posts here and there. After self analyzing my behavior, I've decided that making a to do list and planning to finish it screws up any creativity I've got at the moment.

I should go paint that wall. It would look so cool in {insert color here}.
Oh. Yeah. I promised I'd finish my to do list. Stupid list. I'll go bake brownies instead.

And that is how the last 30 days went. 

Raising 4 kids was pretty time consuming too. 


I'm so sick of writing about the boys room and I'm sure  you're sick of hearing about it too. But, this is one thing I did (while shoving my face full of brownies).

A few years ago I bought this horribly beat up trunk at an estate sale for $5 because my boy really wanted a treasure box. To hide his special things. 

It was dented, and ugly, and shiny. And someone named Tony made sure everyone knew it was his (hers?). Apparently I tried really hard to not take any pictures of it. It's hideous-ness is not captured on film.

I painted it the same color as the dressers a while back. But, still, wasn't really feeling it. Too matchy - matchy. No one needs things to match around here for Pete's sake!

And then the brilliant idea struck at around 4:30 when I should have been making dinner.

Doesn't it look so masculine with it's new coat of green and red cross symbol?

What's inside, you ask? Special treasures found on once in a lifetime adventures?

Snakes, and snails, and puppy dogs tails?

  3. Security is always an important consideration and must always be very good at any storage facility. We've never had a single problem with ours. Access is easy and the place is immaculate.
