This wooden chest / trunk that is over a century old was transformed into this One of a Kind Chest Accent table that was pulled out from under the sea!
This antique piece was salvaged from the early 1900's and completely restored from inside and out. So much work was performed on this piece. Most of the original metal around the trunk was kept as its original form however several new hardware like copper buckles, hinges and leather handle straps were added. Metal hairpin legs were also added to the base to transform it into a table.
The chest was painted with Dixie Belle's Patina paint in a mix of copper and bronze and rusted in the appropriate areas. For the inside of the chest, custom made decoupage paper was ordered to match the colors and design of this chest and were decoupaged meticulously all around to match pattern. It was then dry brushed with bronze for an antique effect. The piece was sealed with patina guard and top coat and is ready for use!
This is a truly magnificent antique piece that looks like it has gone through so much history and travelled the oceans. Giving it the rusted under the sea finish seemed like the most appropriate look for it.
This Chest is a definite stunner that can be used for storage and can also be used as an Accent table in your living space.
This is one of my favorites!
