I am doing about 10 different projects right now ~ all having to do with what I need to start showing again this Fall.
Since I will be showing sidesaddle, I am trying to gear everything toward the era of the late 1800's. This is my antique Steamer Trunk...
..that I am going to refurbish hopefully to look like this!
This is a solid brass lid lift I am going to attach on the front of the trunk.
These is the hardware that keeps the leather handles on.
..and these are the new handles I ordered.The total + shipping was about $38.00. I need to buy some copper colored paint for the tin. I have the black paint already. It should be a fairly simple project and add some character to my stall decorations at the show.
