Take away all hardware (handles, knobs, legs and metal corners) from your trunk with a screwdriver.
Use sand paper to rough up the finish of your trunk. You do not want to eliminate all the finish or paint as it will be covered. Nonetheless, to permit for the primer and paint to adhere nicely, you will require a rough surface.

Allow the primer to remedy for many hrs.
Include Colour With Paint!

Apply the paint liberally during the total trunk making use of the foam roller. Touch up corners and edges with a brush. Be positive to brush out any excess globs of paint by sweeping your brush in the path of the wood grain.

Pre-drill the holes. It may be easier to use a hardware template (we did!) to make sure your holes align effectively.
Apply Campaign Hardware corners to every correct angle around your trunk. If yours has two panels like ours you will require two sets for eight decorative corners for the front.
Add Furniture Legs
Lay the trunk on its back and attach new furniture legs to the base of each corner.
Once again, pre-drilling the holes will make it less complicated.
