I lovingly refer to my garage as
The Hell Hole.
Why? Because it is one. You could probably find Jimmy Hoffa out there. Or the Lindbergh baby. But lately it is looking better. Partly because Big Daddy has asked me to please prioritize my projects. This means I should give the pieces that have been out there the longest credit for time served.
This one has been sitting out there, covered in crap for two and a half years.
The other reason for the extend sentence was that it smelled like…….. let’s just say it stunk.
So to appease my husband I took the trunk out in preparation for God knows what and I began to Google how to get the stink out. Turns out the easiest thing to do?
It don’t stink No Mo.
The trunk was free from a good friend and I used eight cans of $.98 flat white spray paint from Walmart.
The majoirity of this trunk is metal so as soon as it was dry I took a medium grit sanding sponge to it to bring out all of the sweet details. And , as usual I am kicking my own rear end for letting it sit for so long!
I did the project out in my side yard with the company of my neighbor boy, Zachary. He told me every joke he ever heard.
He is a cool little dude:)
Makes a pretty sweet outdoor coffee table, if I do say so…..
Have a lovely long Memorial weekend 🙂
