When I first laid eyes on this unusual Louis Vuitton trunk, I knew that I wanted to work on it. In obvious need of some restorative TLC, the first thing that bothered me was the condition of the all leather exterior. I tried various leather conditioners before I hit on the right one which really soaked in and softened the finish. Cleaning all of those LV nailheads is never a fun project but realizing that they were all copper, was something I had never seen. The really interesting design of this trunk is the fact that it opens from the front and is really a holder for two sliding trays (I guess they could be called drawers, right?). Check out the last pic and you can see what it looked like before I got my paws on it.
