For the Love of Trunks

trunks

trunks

There are nearly endless uses for old leather traveling trunks! They are nostalgic, functional and oh so classy.

If you don’t have an older family member who might very well have one, check out some garage sales, thrift shops, or antique shops. They may not come in perfect condition, but a little TLC will take care of that.

  1. Find a trunk that fits the space you have.
  2. Don’t worry about broken handles, they are easy to replace and sometimes look fine as they are. Remember you’re not traveling with them, just showing them off.
  3. Reject any that have signs of mold. It may not be worth the trouble.
  4. It may take a few tries to find your gem, but shopping for one is half the fun!
  5. Once you find one you love, wipe it down inside and outside with a damp rag.
  6. If you want to deepen the color, you can use furniture polish or stain.
  7. It’s likely to be a bit musty so place a small bowl of bleach on top of a towel on the bottom of the trunk and then close it and let it sit overnight. Make sure no one knocks into it – you don’t want to spill the bleach.
  8. In the morning, dispose of the bowl of bleach and let it air out for the rest of the day.
  9. If the inside needs a new liner, peel off the old and pick up a cool patterned liner that fits your style.
  10. Once it’s clean and ready you can use the trunk as a: coffee table, storage for blankets, pillows, toys, books, firewood… oh, the possibilities are endless!

England_Moving_tips

 

It’s comforting to know that home is where the heart is.  Many times during our lives we will change the location of our home base. Whether it’s for a career, family, adventure or any of a multitude of reasons, almost everyone will at some point move. What’s interesting is that although our physical home may change, our tastes generally stay the same and so the challenge then becomes moving the contents of our home with us.

One of the many great benefits of owning England Furniture lies in having peace of mind and confidence in their products. England Furniture Company takes pride in everything they create and their furniture products are built to last. Moving furniture can be risky but the durability of England Furniture products can lower those risks and offer freedom to start over in a new place with all the familiar comforts of home.

Here are a few tips to consider if you are moving:

  • Wrap any furniture that is scratchable or dentable in protective padding to prevent damage. Check out moving or storage companies for options in renting these and avoid using your own materials, such as linens, to do this as they will not be nearly as protective as the professional padding.
  • Gather cardboard boxes, packing tape and other packing materials for smaller items and label clearly the contents on the outside of the box and the room that you would like to place them in once moved.
  • Whenever possible, use materials that you will be taking with you anyway to wrap fragile objects. This is where using linens will come in very handy.
  • Prepare an inventory list for yourself.
  • As early on as you can before the move, start packing non-essentials. You will be very happy you did as the moving date comes close.
  • Use this time as an opportunity to sort through items that you might no longer need or enjoy and discard or donate things.
