Little Black Trunk

When ever I purchase something, I usually have an immediate vision for it.  I started in one direction for this beautiful trunk, but ended here.  This trunk came from an auction where it sat in the attic an abandoned home here in Delaware for 20 years.  I cleaned and decoupaged the inside with vintage road maps.  The wood strips on the trunk were beautiful, but the outside canvas was really worn.  I used my very favorite go-to black paint, General Finishes Lamp Black.  I applied a heavy wash because I wanted to cover it, but still leave somethings opaque.  I then applied my signature style of distressing and acheived the perfect effect I was going for.  This trunk sold very quickly to an extremely happy customer.
