here are the "after" photos! the trunk still needs a tiny bit of work...but i'm SO excited about what a perfect spot it is for our records, etc! awesome! i covered the top with awesome pieces of a vintage California souvenir tablecloth. the remaining pieces went on to the rocking chair seat. the rocking chair got quite a few coats of white paint and then got all sanded up...i love it now! LOVE it:) check out my chippy yellow table too. cutest ever. it was SO perfectly chipped up and distressed from years and years of use. all i did was clean it and seal it! love.
