I made this for drdormouse for the Huge, Giant, Enormous Swap based off of a picture on her Pinterest & various other pics that I found via googling "steamer trunk." This is actually version 2.0. Originally I was going to upcycle a trunk I found at a thrift store but... well that just didn't pan out. >.>' So instead I went and bought a trunk from Walmart & upgraded it instead. I installed the closet bar in the "top" half. The only addition to the curtain were a couple sets of snaps & 2 grommets to shorten it so when you pulled it around the clothes on the hanger (which had to be shortened to fit) the clothes wouldn't hang past the bottom of the trunk. The "bottom" half has what amounts to a book shelf with doors added. Magnets keep the doors up/closed. All in all I really ended up liking how it came out & I hope she does too. Eventually it should end up in the swap gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431488.0#axzz2t17XYwIm

Wow, you really went above and beyond! Did you have to ship that, or were you close enough to your partner to hand-deliver it? I shudder to think of the mailing costs!

Shipping cost about $75. >.<'
As for going above and beyond, I was only trying to make it so we were about even. She decided right off the bat that she was going to not only make the one item from my list but also most of an outfit and then made something for my daughter too! Honestly I don't feel like I did enough.

Thanks everyone! ^.^
I was going to post more pics but I thought they all looked too similar. :/ They were all taken from the same angle. I'll go back and add a few.
