My friend Jenny came over yesterday with this darling little trunk she had picked up for only $2. The question: How could we update it without compromising it's charm? The answer: accent it with creamy white. There's a fine line between authentic and tired, so for this piece, we left the best part, the upholstery, and we updated the worn top and scuffed legs.
We added two coats of paint to the legs and covered the top with some soft creamy white fabric--a simple fix and a big transformation.
