Does anyone remember the Pottery Barn "Weston" trunks? Well, I wanted them but when I told my husband they were $1,200.00 for a set of three he suggested I try and make them. So this is a picture of the actual trunks from Pottery Barn.
And here is my rendition.
I spent about $75 making all three of them, including hardware. I couldn't find the hardware that looked like the original so I improvised and got some regular clasps and painted a black circle around it. I used pine and I remember while I was putting it together, my dad mentioned how it was a good thing I liked the "distressed look". I'm not sure what he was saying, but I think they turned out pretty good.
