painted trunk




i found this small trunk at the recycling centre and the local tip, and i have been hunting for one for ages, i got it for £2. i love that place lol.

 i first cleaned all the dust off of it, then i spray painted it white using plasicote spray paint, then to give it a more matt look i then got a tester pot of white emulsion and painted it. then i put these vinyl letters on it. im thinking about getting table legs for it and making it into a side table, i saw it done at songbird.blogspot.com and it looks great.
