Actualmente, I kind of do. Or I have. Or I sometimes do...
Remember when I said that I'm attempting to decorate my new apartment at least a little bit? Well over the past few months, I've updated a few furniture pieces, so I thought I might share them :]
The first is this trunk that was gifted to me:
My mom found it at the thrift store for about 5 bucks and decided that I needed it. You go mom.
Her reasoning was that she had a big ol' trunk when she was in college; therefore, I needed one too. But now that I am newly post-college, and since I have no attachment to Northwestern since I didn't go to school there, I decided that it would be fun to paint this one.
I mean, I didn't really think that painting would hurt this one or anything. It was all scuffed and banged up and had def seen better days anyway...
So all I did was update it with a few coats of some cheery yellow paint! Now I feel like it is a thousand times cuter.
All I used was some regular interior paint from the hardware store and put on three coats. I suppose I could have taped off the edges of the metal parts of the trunk, but let's just say
I still have quite a bit of decorating to do, but I think that I am making steady progress. (For example, since taking these pictures, I decided that a mature adult would CLEARLY have some Game of Thrones and Hobbit posters next to their bed, so that is precisely what I did. Hell yeaaaa~)
So what do you all think? Any tips for a novice furniture makeover-er?
