I am in love with trunks. All kinds. All sizes. I love this one in particular. I can just tell it crossed the great ocean with petticoats, treasures and books stowed inside. It had great details that just needed a little attention to show them off. The interior smelled very musty and moldy, but I used scrap paper and mod podged about 50 sheets into it. Now there is just a faint smell of GLUE! I can live with that. I used Annie Sloan graphite and chateau grey chalk paint to bring it to life.
