In fact, I counted about five last time I looked. One of them got a makeover a few years ago with decoupage and became the Chivalrous Trunk. But the rest were in pretty bad shape. After years in the basement (where else would they be) it was time for a makeover! I had to drag this one upstairs to work on her.
As you may know I am an Old Fashioned Milk Paint Brand Blogger and I was curious to see if this true milk paint would work on metal. And so today I am going to show you how to revive a metal trunk with Old Fashioned Milk Paint.
I was going to paint it myself but instead I got one of my girls to do it instead. Nothing like having her do a little work for some extra money. My girl is an artist so I was not worried about the results. And Old Fashioned Milk Paint is safe and friendly for the environment.
Why my friend Pili of Sweet Things has her little girl paint a side table. The results were gorgeous and she was confident that the paint would not harm her little girl! With that in mind I was not worried about my teen!
You can see just how much I love my milk paint, I ordered a big batch of it. I keep it in jars. In fact you can mix up only the amount you want and store the unused portion for up to 3 days in the fridge.
Now tell me, what should I do with the other trunks?
