Wooden Trunk (part two)

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!

Sneak Peek: Wooden Trunk Refab

I recently went yard sale hunting with my friend/my hubby’s coworker, Beth. We were champs and hit up about eight or so community garages sales. We filled our entire truck — it was epic.

One of the treasures I picked up was this ugly little trunk. It was $3 and the perfect project. The hubby and I are in desperate need of a new save box, and this gem will do the trick perfectly once it’s finished.

It’s pretty atrocious as is, all blue, pink, chipped and nasty.

But I have big plans for this baby. I spent the evening priming it white.

Looks better already, huh?

Check back later this week to see how I finish the trunk!
