This vintage trunk makeover was a project I completed while I was working on our mudroom makeover last Spring. I absolutely love this project, so I’m excited to finally be sharing it with you today.
Time: 5 HoursCost: $25Difficulty: Easy
Here it is before, I took this photo right after my husband gave it to me. I did share this with a friend who knows a great deal about antiques before I even touched it, and she assured me it was OK to paint it. I knew I wanted to go with white chalk paint.
And here is the trunk after the second coat. I opted to paint all of the hardware. That is because I wanted to be able to go back and distress all of the hardware after.
Use a find grit sanding pad to distress all of the hardware and the detailed wooden trim so that it looks distressed.
Suggested materials for this project:
- Chalk paint (Amazon)
- Clear Creme wax (Amazon)
