Modern Farmhouse Trunk

I made this trunk by using Shanty 2 Chic's plans for a DIY Modern Farmhouse Trunk. This was a silent auction item I donated to the Spokane Guilds School Annual Dinner. It sold for over $700! This was my first trunk/ box build and it challenged my skills for sure. Shanty's plans were super easy to follow. I built it in stages to break down the time but ended up having to stain it in my basement due to the temperature in the garage dipped to low. The finish is Minwax dark walnut stain inside and out, with a off white/cream layer of paint (leftover from another project) outside and distressed. Hardware and wood was purchased from Home Depot and side handles from Hobby Lobby.
