Step 1

Rub wax on your trunk (go crazy with it) and paint the entire trunk (except for the hardware) with rustic finish and let dry for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Sand the trunk with a sanding block or sander. The paint will sand off in the areas where you waxed. Wipe your trunk with a damp rag and rub wax on your trunk again.

Step 3

Paint the entire trunk in Treasure and let dry. Sand again, exposing the Rustic paint and the original color of the trunk. Stencil on the front using the color Yesteryear. Protect the entire trunk with the Ultra-Matte Varnish.
