Introduction: Storage Trunk Makeover
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
Step 2: You'll Need
Large storage trunk
Americana Decor Paris Stencil
Sanding blocks or sander
Household or candle wax
Rub wax on your trunk (go crazy with it)
Paint the entire trunk (except for the hardware) with Rustic and let dry for 30 minutes
Sand the trunk with a sanding block or sander
*The paint will sand off in the areas where you waxed
Wipe your trunk with a damp rag Rub wax on your trunk again
Paint the entire trunk in Treasure and let dry
Sand again, exposing the Rustic paint and the original color of the trunk
Stencil on the front using the color Yesteryear
Protect the entire trunk with the Ultra-Matte Varnish
Use it as a coffee or side table with the added benefit of storage.
We have a be nice policy.
