I tried to pare our stuff down to one trunk for myself and one for my husband.

HOWEVER, when we were first engaged I took a box of his childhood graphic tees to consignment and it breaks my heart to think of all those cute tees he wore as a little boy being gone...
They would have been perfect for our nephews or (someday) our own child. They were SO cool, but I didn't connect the sentiment to them at the time. And to think, his Mom held onto them for all those years... Little league shirts, summer camp shirts....UGH! It didn't take me long to realize I had made an impulsive "purge" and regret it!

That was 4 years ago and I STILL kick myself for it. So, be careful what you part with!!!

I like Anna's idea of re-laminating the sides with a contrasting wood veneer...or even a solid paint color depending on your decor. It's beautiful...I love it. Even if you just glue down the loose ends and live with it for a while, you will figure out what needs to be done eventually!
