My friend Julie, had this old trunk. It is a family hand-me down and she wanted it painted. It was a yellow-orangey pine. It was begging for a painting! Now, I am having a serious need to keep this thing! It looks so great in front of my sofa! I must find a trunk now, for my coffee table. I haven't had a coffee table in years. I got rid of it when the kids were little, cause my little girl actually cut the inside of her lip, falling on the corner of my old coffee table. We just haven't had one in so long, I forgot that everyone is big enough, not to fall into it now, ha ha ha! I like items that are unconventional too. An old trunk, a cutoff kitchen table, pallets, etc....I am on the hunt! I may even paint it this same color scheme....We will see! Enjoy your trunk, Julie! I am gonna miss it, lol!
