First Aid Foot Locker

Found an old wooden trunk a while back...



I painted it white with Annie Sloan chalk paint last year so 
for this project I was 1/2 way there...


My inspirations were... this sign from 


A little something in the meantime...

and this trunk 


from Breida with a B

so together I was sure to have a winner!

I began by drawing on the cross and 
tracing around the letters from stencils...


It looked great white but I wanted this foot locker to be aged looking... after all it is a vintage trunk...


I coated the top with clear wax and then a coat of
 CeCe Caldwell dark wax, it gave it a perfect vintage look.


I added castors so the trunk would roll...


The inside is old and awesome!


It is the perfect little vintage foot locker!

  2. That is so cute and gave me an idea for a similar wood box I bought a couple of weeks ago. Mine isn't as deep but has that same look otherwise. I have it at my booth right now "as is" but I think it might have to come back home with me for a little update! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Susan one of my favorite projects honestly. It's so campy and vintage, where did you find those casters? I've been searching for solid metal casters for awhile now, HD and my local Ace only carry black rubber. Pinning thank you.
