Storage Trunk Makeover

by Brepurposed
It's pretty much a given now that for every holiday, my family is getting something handmade from me. And it was no exception for Christmas this year! My brother had an old trunk in his attic that he wanted me to redo for him and that's exactly what I did!
It was pretty beat up. God only knows how long it was up there for. Here is what it looked like before:
The inside was probably the worst part.
I started out by staining the wood panels with some General Finishes Gel Stain in Brown Mahogany.

    I love what you did. I have an old trunk and I have been debating on what to do with it. Part of me wants to paint it shabby. But I am still on the fence with the ideas. thanks.
