Treasure Trunk

Mostly everyone that knows me, knows I have an affinity for treasure chests, and any type of wooden storage boxes! I live in an apartment, not even a fancy condo type apartment but in a regular apartment with very little storage and I am always looking for storage ideas. Boxes are the best by far!

A few weeks ago, I found this treasure for free and I was ecstatic with possibilities for it! 😉


I thought about painting it black but then my love of white won over. It got a good spray painting of rustoleum flat white and a good sanding, and it is one of my favorites already!!!


I may have sanded a little too much because I think it just ended up looking like a really bad paint job but I like it! 😉 I may re-paint it later and do without the distressing of it but I’m not sure yet. For now, I’m happy with it just as it is.

Here it is under my entryway table. It holds mostly photo albums and some of my children’s baby things. What about you? What’s your favorite color to paint things with? Mine is still white!! 😀


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. I love old trunks! They really add character to a room. If they could speak, I’m sure we would be amazed at the stories! White was the perfect color, as if the trunk begins its new life with a clean slate in your home. Great choice – much better than black. But now, you make me want to find another trunk… and if I do find one, where on earth will I put it? =)
