Grandma Ruth's Trunk

We found an old trunk at the farm after Grandma Ruth passed away. Someone had painted it dark brown!  I rescued it and painted it in Americana style to go with my décor at that time.   Since my decorating style has changed dramatically, I decided it needed a redo.....vintage style.   Spray paint, modge podge and scrapbook paper are wonderful things.  I began going thru my stash of scrapbook paper and came across a lot of sewing themed paper as well as Paris, and French word papers, so that is how I began. 

Not hard work, but it was time consuming.  I work on this on and off for about 3 weekends or so.   I used vintage dictionary pages to line the inside.   I am really pleased how well it turned out.
