Sophie Anderson recently shared this fantastic trunk makeover in our private Facebook Group – The Furniture Painting Hub – With Shabby Nook! It came to Sophie covered in layers of gloss paint and old decoupage, mouldy inside, holes in the bottom and, to finish it off, rusty hardware! But Sophie worked her magic and transformed it by painting it in Midnight Blue by Fusion Mineral Paint (one of our bestsellers!), re-lining it and treating and repairing the mould and hole damage. Sophie’s top tips are to check for damp and mould inside before painting and to seal the wood inside to prevent future damp problems. Great tips and a fab transformation, Sophie!
