My Christmas tree is already down
and I am on to rearranging furniture!
I love the "new" this time of year.
When I found this "old" metal trunk in the trash
I knew it would find a corner somewhere in my home.
Since it was rough and rusted,
It wasn't really important to keep anything original.
After a good sanding and cleaning,
I sprayed the entire trunk with Rustoleum Hammered Black.
Then I brush painted the insets creamy white
and shaded with Folkart Camel.
I had some number stencils that I had made
I used those to make some graphic black numbers
on the trunk.
I shaded those with camel too.
And dry brushed white over the top.
Stacking two trunks in this corner makes
a nice height for my lamp.
Imagine the fun I had the night
I found this old trunk roadside by the trash!
It was 10:00 at night and raining
when I asked my husband to pull over.
He doesn't even hesitate anymore.
It's a way of life!
Always appreciate your visit,
