If you are like the rest of us, sufficient storage is an ongoing problem. Ashley and Whitney from Shanty-2-Chic have come up with a beautiful solution to this problem.
Not only do they provide a step-by-step tutorial and a video for creating this functional trunk, they also provide free printable plans to construct this decorative and serviceable piece of furniture. The real fun is in selecting the paint, hardware, and trim. These three components offer you the opportunity to let your imagination guide you to creating a truly unique piece that reflects your own design concept. Ashley and Whitney created a farmhouse look using chalk paint with a minimum of decorative trim as well as sturdy and durable hardware.
The basic trunk will be sleek and modern if you choose a high gloss paint and perhaps brushed steel hardware, or it can reflect a vintage shabby chic feel by distressing the paint and selecting more ornate hardware.
