Im SO excited to be showing you my latest newest project.Its another before and after that didnt cost me a cent as I already had everything on hand.
Over the summer my kids and I went around our neighborhood to some garage sales and at the last house we spotted this old trunk "and I do mean OLD"
I went over and asked the lady how much and she said "just take it" because a long time ago she was at a garage sale and an old lady gave it to her because it was her husbands.Well I loaded it up and home it came with me and I knew exactly what I was going to do with this wonderful old box of memories.
first I set it outside in the sun for a few days to get the musty smell out.Next I sprayed it all over with Rustolium antique white inside and out.
Next I drilled 4 holes in the bottom of the trunk to attach the really cool round legs that I had left over from my old furniture.After they were liquid nailed on I proceeded to modge podge on some sheet music wrapping paper that I burned with matches to give it an aged appearence.Then I had some big sheets of styrofoam in the garage so I hot glued some red Paisley material that was in my craft room to the cut down pieces of styrofoam and slipped them into the trunk like a glove!They fit Perfectly:) WHEW!!
