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...  

and this trunk from Breida with a Btogether 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 dark wax, it gave it a perfect vintage look.

I added cute castors so the trunk would roll.

The inside is old and just as awesome!

It is the perfect little vintage foot locker for the very special
nurse who purchased this piece!
