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.
