Cedar Trunk Makeover

I have a confession...I'm a sucker for trunks! I already have several in my house and keep adding more. When you live in a 1950s house that has minimal storage and not a lot of square footage {like I do}, you need to be smart with the pieces you add to the decor. Each piece I add has to be incredibly functional and serve ever changing needs. This is a look at my most recent trunk makeover.
Lovely detailing on the front pops with the Annie Sloan Graphite paint.
I lightly distressed the paint and finished in Dark wax to create the rich grey color.
Beautiful cedar construction.
Brass detailing on the top.

    Beautiful!!! I LOVE this piece! You did a great job!!! Thanks for the ideas I got from you! I like how you just take off a little paint, with nice lines, It is a wonderful piece to hand down............babs
