Craftsman Decorative Trunks

from Hooked on Houses

The Story of a 1925 Craftsman Cottage in Mississippi

“A collection of vintage mirrors hang grouped in our bedroom, and an armoire built by my daddy and Ben from a door that was in my grandfather’s barn, houses his clothes. We found the old painted cedar chest at a flea market in Meridian, Mississippi. The bed linens are mismatched textures in shades of white and cream. 2 antique cameos sit perched on an old door frame above our iron bed.”

The inscription on the original Woodpecker Tapestry was embroidered by May Morris (Morris’ daughter), and reads “I once a king and chief, now am the tree-barks thief, ever twixt trunk and leaf, chasing the prey” The quotation was taken from a poem by William Morris about an ancient fabled Italian king named Picas who was transformed into a woodpecker.


This photo is my inspiration. I have just bought a similar trunk at an auction and am in the process of rennovating it. Will post before and after photos once my photographer wakes up!
