I posted this one about two months ago, not quite done with it yet but pretty close, thought I would show you how its going, sorry for the pictures, they are inside. This trunk is the biggest one I've done so far, at 38 inches long, 32 inches at the peak and 22 1/2 inches deep, its big. Cleaned and sanded the wood, used minwax antique oil finish on the natural wood, it almost looks like a cherry stain, but its not. I cleaned all the metal with a nylon wheel brush and drill, just took off the loose rust,did not clean to bare metal and applied Rust-oleum rust reformer with a brush, it turned it a very dark almost black color, I like the way it looks, almost original looking and not painted, finished off the hardware with silver rub n buff. the lock is nickel plate over brass, hope you like it, greendog.
