I turned a lovely rusty metal trunk into a cheerful seaside cottage piece
with some paint, wax, and some stenciling.
The picture above is what the trunk looked like when I started. I had it propped up on a platform
so I could walk around it and brush paint the sides.
Below is a picture I took during the painting, distressing, and waxing process.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paints for the whole trunk. The white is OLD WHITE, but there is no details for a color recipe of the blue as it was a mix of several left over mixes I had already created. If you would like to try duplicating something close start by adding a little PROVENCE to OLD WHITE and go from there.
Here is a picture of the inside before I stripped all the old paper out,
I finished by sealed the interior wood with a poly.
The BEACH HOUSE trunk is listed on the SHOWROOM page with price and dimensions.
