Vintage Wooden Trunk Box Side Table Restored

Vintage wooden trunk box side table restored.

Size: W55cm x D30cm x H28cm approx.

Weight: 10Kgs.

I found this vintage wooden small trunk in a market in need of some restoration and a lot of tlc.

The trunk had some white paint all over and was extremely dirty. I sanded it down extensively and got rid of most of the paint even if some small residues can be seen here and there. I then gave the trunk 2 coats of bees  wax to bring it back to its original colour

I then painted the inside a vintage willow colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look.

The trunk still retains its original hinges, closing mechanism and metal strips all around the corners. At the bottom of the trunk there is also a metal sheet, probably put there to protect it, which rusted over time. Because the rust was flaking I decided to coat it with a layer of varnish.

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.
