We refinished the old steamer trunk

Christmas Eve 2003, the trunk was finally ready. In fact, Santa delivered it! The guys did a good job I think - green velvet lining with cream braiding. They put new canvas on the outside of the trunk. It caught me off guard at first because I was expecting the trunk to be brown. The trunk was brown because of use - okay, dirt - but the trunks from that time period usually had trays in the top, so the guys made a tray for me. The picture is from the original paper lining, and is a Russian cossack on a galloping horse.
