Take an inexpensive storage trunk (get them at a big box store or a yard sale) and give it a vintage weathered look perfect for your home decor. I used a wax technique and Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint and DecoArt Vintage French Stencils.

Step 1: See the Video Tutorial Here

I need instructions on how to open one of these when you no longer have the key!
<p>Great job painting! I am impressed...I have a trunk that looks just like that sitting in my room...minus the label...but that's the way I got it. What a transformation! :)</p>
<p>Nicely done! I like the patina.</p>
<p>Thanks craftclarity, I'm actually thinking about adding more color to it. Maybe more green.....Feel like it might be too blue for my living room. </p>
