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.
