Old Trunk turned Beach House Trunk

This wooden chest was found at this yard sale. I hit the jackpot. This was one of those 'just happened to pass by on the way to another yard sale', yard sales. The hubster actually saw this one, he's trained :) He's a trooper, just packs everything I want into the Ford. LOOK at these beauties!

This was one of my favorite projects. 

I know I have individual photos of this particular chest, but this is what your getting. You know the outcome is what we all really want to see, right? Sooo...looky-looky!

Pretty sweet, right!?! I L-O-V-E the completion of this chest! It didn't take long. For some reason, I had this vision as I went along, and it developed into this beauty. A wonderful beauty.

I cleaned this baby up, added some pretty painted legs, and the anchor stencil as a beach themed storage trunk. This baby sold within 24 hours of being in the store!  Happy dance!! 

The pretty legs.

The pretty legs.

I left the inside in its natural state, with just a hint of coastal swag 😉   I hated to part with this trunk. I did keep one, I'll share that in another post. Still have another to dress coastal and sell! I'm thinking starfish....

Pretty isn't she?
