Vintage Chest/Trunk Coffee Table Restored
Size: W62cm x D46cm x H36cm approx. Weight: 15Kgs.
Vintage trunk chest coffee table restored.
I found this vintage wooden trunk in a market in need of some restoration and a lot of tlc.
I first sanded it down extensively to bring it back to its original colour and gave it 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
I then painted the inside a vintage sage colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look.
The cast iron hinges are still working but are a bit weak. I therefore added 2 ropes in the inside to keep the lid open and to avoid any unnecessary pressure on the hinges.
The trunk still has all the original carved writing on the top and sides reading: "C.Law, H.Sham Deni, Torquay." There is also the word:"Inghilterra" at the top and side, which tells me this trunk was sent from Italy to Torquay. And still intact at the top there is the original paper label.
I think this trunk would look great in any room adding a touch of rustic and quirkiness to any space as well as providing good storage.
