Dear "A Beach Cottage desinger" Would you be able to share where you got the luggage and chest night table. Is it purchased or did you paint a luggage and trunk white. Thank you

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???

Annie Sloan chalk paint works great on metal (and glass too)

Painting these white and using them for a beach cottage bedside table is BRILLIANT!

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.

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.

Sarah was the first Australian to invite Houzz into her Sidney beach house, which is full of natural textures, interesting objects, and vintage furniture.
Laura Gaskill added this to Decorating Around the World: Easy Living in Australia
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.

9. Trunk or suitcases. To add a vintage look to your bedroom, go for those old and weathered suitcases you’ve had your eye on in the thrift store. Stack them together and place a sturdy tray on top for a fun DIY night table. Opt for a variety of colors to create a design feature in the room, or get crafty and paint your suitcases the same color for a more Shabby Chic look, as in this photo.
