DIY sneak peek...

For those of you curious to know how my DIY is coming along...all I can say is that it's coming! Its taking a lot longer than I had expected, and I don't have too much patience for these long drawn out projects, but I have decided this time to see it through from start to finish, and take my time in doing so. No hurrying this time! There's a lot of work left to do but here are some progress pics.....I need encouragement to keep going :-)



Also, the locksmith bailed on me last Sunday, and we are all dying to know what's in the mystery box. The locksmith is missing in action, took off for his village for the festivities and is keeping mum about his return date, so I was resigned to having to wait till His Majesty showed up. Locksmiths are hard to find......! But, a guardian angel fellow blogger (hint: to her I say "Tusen Takk") spread the word...and I just received a call from a locksmith who has promised to show up tomorrow!! Yay yay yay!!!

lovely diy project.loved the details

Kamini said...

I'm afraid the mystery box may end up being a total anti climax! My cousin says our great grandpa used it to store money and then in his later years when he turned a bit senile he started cutting notes and making envelopes with them. So who knows...but the anticipation is certainly fun!

Sound Horn Please said...

Oh! The trunk already looks gorgeous! And the suspense build up to the mystery box is too much to take!

GB said...

But Kamini, think of it--vintage money, envelopes! how fun!

it'll be a lovely tale to pass down generations!

Locksmiths perform a vital role for home security and peace of mind for families. A reliable locksmith comes in handy whether your house is secured with an alarm system or locks as they can assist with both systems.
