Re-purposing: A Vintage Trunk to a Wonderful Coffee Table

As I thrifted this weekend I came across a few lovely trunks. Sometimes they are in perfect condition and it would be horrific if they were painted……

But sometimes they are damaged, dirty and are begging for a new life.

Revive that stained  trunk with these DIY instructions!

*Before you paint, make sure you don’t have a major collectible on hand! I once had the privilege of seeing a trunk that was possibly owned by John A. MacDonald s wife. Check for shipping tags and high end trunk brands.
