About a year ago I posted about the Bauder Pine attic roombox inside a trunk. Recently I spotted another one on eBay, but this was a Spanish style. I was going to bid on it, but I always wait until the very end of the auction, and this time I forgot that I had to log in to eBay before I could bid. By the time I logged in, the auction had ended. *facepalm*
Anyway, someone got themselves a nice treasure! I hope whoever bought it doesn’t mind that I grabbed the photos off eBay.
My attic trunk has an open front, but the front of the Spanish trunk slides open and closed.
Inside it has stucco walls and a clay tile floor. The tiles look a bit large. If I’d bought it, I might have replaced it with a dark hardwood floor.
Like my attic trunk, the top of the Spanish trunk swings open on hinges.
That allows access to the area behind the wall, but the Spanish trunk doesn’t have electricity like mine does. Seems like this would make the area behind the wall too dark to see through the windows, but maybe some light comes in when the top of the trunk is open.
The bottom of the eBay trunk was signed and numbered 19/50. Seeing this made me check my own trunk roombox, but mine isn’t signed. I heard that mine was offered as a workshop at the NAME 1987 national convention, so the fact that it’s not signed probably means it was finished by the person who took the workshop, not by Bauder Pine.
My attic has picked up a bit more clutter since I posted about it last year. Here’s how it currently looks.
