PAINTING A METAL TRUNK with annie sloan chalk paint





Wondering what to do with that
rusty old metal trunk you can't
seem to let go of? I painted mine
with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Come see if yours is as rough
as mine.



BEFORE 


The picture above is what the trunk looked like right before I
started to paint. A little warm water and soap bath to get it
 clean. I had it propped up on a platform so I could walk
 around it and brush paint the sides. Below is a picture took
while I was distressing after most of the painting was done.
 

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paints on the whole trunk.
I used OLD WHITE and a created the blue from left overs of
 other painted furniture I had doneIf you would like to try 
duplicating something close start by adding a little 
PROVENCE to OLD WHITE and go from there.

This is a look inside before I stripped it clean.
I finished the inside by sealed the interior wood with a poly.
It needed to stay open an dry for a few days.


For the BEACH HOUSE letters and starfish, I printed out 
letters the right size on individual sheets of paper and traced 
the shapes onto the painted surface then I filled them in 
by hand with Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint. 
Give it a try!
