Up cycle Project:
The storage Trunk of Signora Francesca Verre was approximately 40 years old made of wood and metal beading all round the trunk to hold all the pieces together, the pieces were joined with the tongue groove joints making distinctive edges.
The idea was to create an old looking pirate trunk and so i didn’t want to change the old look of the furniture, with a lot of sand papering ,filling the cracks with stucco and reinforcing the joints by adding wooden sections inside i managed to put together a sturdy furniture.
Finally dressed it up by wood varnish ,painted metal strips & hand painted graffiti resembling the pirate trunks. Ola !!
