Antique Trunk

I'm not sure if I should paint this black or burgundy?
I bought it for ten dollars at an estate sale.

Hey Diane,

I have one of those. I can't wait to see what you do. Mine is an ugly brown and yellow.

Hi Diane....Looking forward to the final product. I did a trunk redo and it came out great. Your trunk's brass handles look pretty good. They should shine up nicely. Good luck! Sincerely, Susan from

I;m liking black these days,and you can do so much with it.
but of course, it is hat you are into, not me, that counts.

Remember, it is only spray paint and can be changed whenever you want. =))

Hi my new friend. I just checked my blog and I see that you have joined my followers. I'm so excited to get to know you. I check with my followers 2 or 3 time a week. I have drawings for my followers too.

I've seen some really cool old suitcases painted cream, but I would do it black. Can't wait to see your finished product.

I'm going back to check you out some more. Come visit anytime.



Hi! How's that trunk project coming? I don't know what decor is in the room you intend it for, but it might look great with a picture either painted on it or a collage of photos. And, as Barbara Jean said, you can always change it. Keep up posted!
