Trunk Makeover9:11 AM
I have no idea where we got this baby. We've just always had it. But we've covered the top with a blanket because it's so scratched.
Some scratches were DEEP.
There were even a bunch of random holes.
I filled the scratches and holes in with wood putty and sanded it.
After a coat of spray paint, it was looking great. I missed a few patches in the front but I think it adds to the antique look. I was really just too lazy to go over it again.
I thought the contrast between the unpainted handles and the trunk itself was too bright.
I just added some black shoe polish which darkened up the leather and made it look a lot better
Here's it's new little home! It's filled with all our movies and DVD's and such. Right by the TV for easy access. It's also a really great little foot rest!
