I have an old trunk that I want to paint out shabby chic, but not too too shabby. Just a little sanding on the corners, etc. However, it is metal for the most part, and does have some wooden slats so I was thinking of taking the wood off, and painting the rest of the trunk some kind of white and then putting the slats back on. I cannot imagine not having to sand it, especially since it is metal. Any other ideas???

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Painting these white and using them for a beach cottage bedside table is BRILLIANT!
Becky Harris added this to Trends: Inspired by Burlap
Even her director's chair is covered in a lovely natural linen. To see one of the best examples of using this look throughout a home, check out her entire photoset here.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to 10 Great Choices for Your Bedside Table
You really don't have to spend a lot of money to create a one-of-a-kind bedside table. Sarah took some old suitcases and painted them white for her beach cottage.
Natalie Myers added this to Decorate With Vintage Suitcases
Better yet, paint whatever you do find one color. The white works so well in this beachy bedroom along with the sheets, furniture, and white washed boards. Tip: When painting leather, make sure to wipe it down with alcohol and lightly sand it to remove surface dirt and wax before you begin. Use several coats of acrylic paint.
Becky Harris added this to 20 Spectacular Beach Houses
Sarah was the first Australian to invite Houzz into her Sidney beach house, which is full of natural textures, interesting objects, and vintage furniture.
The beachy vibe continues into the bedroom of this Sydney home, with vintage trunks painted white standing in as a bedside table, a linen-covered director's chair, and old fashioned bedstead. Fresh flowers in a pitcher add a hint of color and create a welcoming mood.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Spectacular Australian Homes
Painting a vintage trunk and suitcase white and stacking them created a quirky and functional nightstand.
Lisa Frederick added this to Director's Chairs Get Starring Role
Most people would have put a vintage bérgère or a distressed ladderback in this cozy cottage bedroom. A director's chair gives it a more streamlined feel and an eclectic edge without sacrificing an ounce of comfort.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to 11 Creative and Thrifty Ideas for Bedside Tables
Painting dissimilar pieces of luggage a solid color unifies any color or material differences and makes their shapes appear more pronounced. The two white suitcases here create a carefree bedside table in an Australian beach-themed bedroom.

Upcycle old luggage Look in antique shops or your grandmother’s attic for items that can be refreshed and repurposed. Second-hand luggage is perfect for use as a table or extra storage and can be brought back to life with a coat of paint, as seen here.
