Aqua Painted Trunk Coffee Table

Kristin of Finley Gray was flipping through Pottery Barn’s catalog when she laid eyes on their Rebecca Trunk, a trunk-style coffee table inspired by an Amish hope chest.

Kristin was immediately smitten and just so happened to have an old trunk sitting in her bedroom.

Since Kristin is having a love affair with aqua lately, she decided to let the trunk join the ranks and made it over using her own special paint concoction.

Here’s what Kristin says about her old-made-new trunk: “I love the way it turned out!… it gives me the same sparkly LOVE IT feelings the original did in the catalog.”

Thanks for sharing this, it is beautiful. I have a metal trunk and I would like to repainted but I don't really know how to do it. What can I do with mine to look as pretty as yours? Thanks :)
