Turquoise Trunk

Hey there,

I hope you and your family are having a fantastic Easter weekend.
 I had good Friday off and got so much accomplished.  One of the things was this  little trunk that I got from my bestest picker..... Kelly,
 thanks again YOU ARE AWESOME!   I decided that I wanted to make another top for it. The original top was in pretty bad shape and I wanted to have more of a cottage look. I used some boards that I found in the trash area of a construction site.

I also wanted to add some feet to the bottom and used parts from an old headboard. I had to cut along the bottom of the trunk to level everything off and to be able to "show off" its feet.

I originally was going to paint this a creamy white and add a french graphic but I changed my mind. This was going to be for my daughter and I didn't feel that it would really fit in with her style. I decided to go much bolder with the color. I sprayed it with Rust-oleum Painter's touch in Lagoon and then did the glazing with Martha Stewart Living Metalic Glaze in Black Coffee. I just love this color with the glaze over it. This little trunk is just so darn cute.

She may use it as an entry bench or a bench at the dining table or even a coffee table. These little things are so versatile. Side by side before and after....... Doesn't it look so much better??I have several projects in the works and now that spring has finally sprung, I will be able to be out in the shop more and hopefully get things posted.
Have a super day today!
