This painted Christmas trunk is the perfect present holder by the Christmas tree.
I love Christmas. When I was a little girl, I’d say around 10, I remember specifically singing in front of the Christmas tree all by myself. My own one-person choir.
I just wanted to soak in as much Christmas as I could. Then I went for years not celebrating Christmas so now that I have kids, I love to go all out for Christmas.
I love the vision of a trunk filled with presents by the tree. I’ve had this old trunk sitting around for so long it was the perfect candidate to paint!
Let me show you how I used metallic paints to turn an old wooden trunk into a painted Christmas trunk filled with presents.
Doesn’t a trunk overflowing with presents by the tree sound the best?
Here is the old trunk before.
The inside I painted with Brushed Steel, Fusion Mineral Paint metallics collection.
The shimmer from these paints match my tree perfectly!
For the exterior I used metallic Champagne from Fusion Mineral Paint.
The one side I stencilled this cute Happy Holidays sign.
And the other side I changed it up with this cute stencil then wrapped a big grey velvet bow around it.
These angel wings are normally in my daughter’s room but I brought them down and stuck them on the wall with command strips.
I love them on this wall!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here!
