Teaser: DIY Trunk BEFORE

As much as I love vintage things I don't necessarily love the tattered bug look. So I've spent the last few days refinishing this to it's former glory.
My uncle got me this 'fixer-upper' at a local auction for $2 last summer. Yes...I know I'm terrible, but I finally got the itch to work on it and now I wish I had done it sooner. After all is said and done I'm going to put some feet on it, line it with fabric and fill it with all of my board games and a cushion for the top and turn it into an ottoman :)

  1. I've been looking for trunk inspiration! (( : I found an old steamer trunk on craigslist for $25 and it's been sitting in my garage waiting for me to become inspired. Any ideas about how to de-funktify a wooden trunk?

  2. Oh! I love it! I have an old steamer trunk in my garage that I found on craigslist that's been waiting for some inspiration. I've surfed the web and it seems to be short of cute trunk makeovers. Needless to say, I'm happy you're up to the challenge and I can't wait to see what you turn it into! (( :
