New Look for an Old Steamer Trunk
I started with an old steamer trunk. Nothing special. It was a little worn, so I painted it with leftover black paint and added red/white stripes with frog tape. The best part was covering it in new travel stickers that I aged with coffee to look old and then applied with Mod Podge. I couldn't be happier with the end results. Wanna see more?

Linda Fraine on Mar 12, 2013love the trunk . I also did a few of them myself. One for a friend who was into music. I covered it in his favorite sheet music. he loved it. The trunk shown here I did for myself. I painted a trompe l'oeil tiger skin and made the body of the trunk faux wood planks with gold hinges and locks. The original trunk was blue with metal clasps and hinges.
Omar on Jan 23, 2017Cool steamer, do you have any way to do a steamer like the one in this page? http://eco-dumpster.com/junk-removal-estate-liquidation/ It's larger, do you think the same process would work? I found it at an estate liquidation.
