    I told myself no more trunks that are painted ..... but this one was to cute to pass up. Purchased this trunk knowing it would be a pain to refinish, it was painted both inside and out with a light green paint. It had the original tray which is unusual, those are usually missing, but of course it too was painted. I removed the paint from the exterior and the tray, left the interior alone. I was tired of removing paint and also wanted to leave a reminder of what it looked like before I started. It is about 12 by 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 inches tall. I replaced a broken slat, leather handles and repaired the tray. The last item I need to call it done is a slat clamp, I've looked at a lot of sites on the web that sell replacement hardware for trunks and haven't located one in the design I need. I've found other doll size ones but not in this design. Any suggestions on where I might find some would be appreciated.

      Very Nice!
      That's going to be a tough one to find.
      Will keep an eye out for it.

      Very nicely done -- inside and out! I would not have passed this up either....

      Wonderful Lil trunk, I concur, tough to find . I'll keep an eye out for parts too.

      Wow, that looks so much better KathyKay. It's hard to believe it's the same trunk.

      Thank you for the love. FatBoy64 agree it doesn't look like the same trunk, with the paint gone it looks totally different.
