Rustic, Vintage Trunk

Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Vanilla Frosting to give this vintage metal trunk a fresh new look!

Hello Country Chic Paint readers!

I have a fun project to share with you today! You may have seen a trunk like this at a local yard sale or thrift shop, or maybe you even own one! Usually they aren’t in the best condition or the best colours for use in your home! Why not paint it?

For the best adhesion to the metal trunk, I used the All-in-One formulation in Vanilla Frosting. Because of the existing tired finish, I didn’t do any prep work other than a good cleaning. I gave the trunk 3 coats in total, letting them dry completely in between.

The best part of the All-in-One formula is that it doesn’t require a topcoat! I sanded it smooth and lightly distressed the edges where natural wear would occur.

From drab to new and fresh! A little paint can transform anything!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
