Designing on a Dime: Painted Wood Trunk

4 Sep

Just a quick post on my grandmother’s trunk. The wood finish on this amazing trunk wasn’t the prettiest and I had planned on using it as my coffee table. I could have left it in it’s original state (an old gunky faded stain) but if you’ve got gold paint WHY not use it?! :p

I used the Martha Stewart Antique Gold I had already purchased.

Since I did not have the time or energy to take my trunk outside and sand it for hours I used a Zinsser Cover Stain primer. It, too, almost killed me. The fumes were stronger than the spray paint!!
