Old Trunk Makeover

I have been meaning to post pictures of my finished trunk (well at least the inside). This was one of my must-do Summer projects, especially because we can use the extra storage space around here. Found this old trunk at a flea's pretty beat up so I wanted to give it a make-over (remember from THIS post?) But I decided I will leave as is on the outside for now, however, the inside needed a major make-over.

Here is the before. Yuck!!!

Changed my mind about the velvet when I accidentally went down the denim aisle at the fabric store. It was all about the staple gun (my dad's very old staple gun that is, lol.)

And here it is after

Picked up some bright orange trim, really like the contrast with the denim.

Again, Before


So of course it is full of "junk" now. Oh well, it's gotta go somewhere right? Waiting for the glass top to be ready. I think eventually when I am ready to change the outside, I may go with white. The denim/orange will look nicely with white.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

  1. I love it! You did a fantastic job and the coral and denim colors remind me of summer time and beaches. I imagine that it was quite a job stapling that. I've done chair seats with the help of husband. I would pull the fabric taut and he would staple. :)

    Great job!
