NOTE: I also ended up cutting 3 more of the shorter pieces for center supports (not shown) but I'll get to those in a minute :) After everything was cut, I balanced the pieces on the bottom of the trunk to make sure they all fit. The whole thing was very sturdy but I wasn't sure what we'd be storing inside of the trunk.Vintage trunks are exquisite pieces that serve both as wonderful decorative accents and as useful storage containers.It is important to me to show the history of the trunk.As I was getting ready to turn the trunk into a bookshelf, I noticed some surface damages to the trunk, which changed my plan on how I wanted to change it. After coating a couple of times, I painted the metal with silver oil-based paint. Next, we cleaned up the inside, stripping the fabric, and spraying with the Kilz. We installed the shelf support strips with wood glue, and braced them wood scraps until the glue set hardened.
