Whew, this little wooden trunk is taking a lot of prep to get to the fun part. After two coats of Kilz primer (I’m gonna try the spray paint primer next time), I painted the trunk with two coats of Behr gray paint. I used Porpoise, which is the darker shade of gray that I painted below the chair rail in our dining room.
It looks really nice — sorry for the cruddy pictures, it was getting dark!
The inside of this little trunk was also rather nasty, so I painted this gray, too.
I am so excited to get home from work tomorrow so I can do the fun part of this project. I’ll give you a hint– it involves metallic silver paint 🙂 Woo!
