Collect eight 3/8 x 2” mitered trim pieces. Position two on one of the trunk corners, so mitered edges meet. Tack into place with 1” brads. Repeat on three other corners. Use either a scrap piece of wood as a spacer or a tape measure to determine placement of 3/8” x 4” trim pieces for front and back of trunk. Once proper placement is determined, tack into place with 1” brads.

On flat work surface, position 1” x 8” board in center with desired topside facing down. Put two 1” x 6” boards on either side of 1” x 8”, topsides also facing down. Allow a slight gap between the boards. A ruler or combo square can be used as a spacer. Position three 1” x 3” boards cut for lid supports, perpendicular over lid planks. Use tape measure or combo square to make sure supports will fit inside trunk opening to ensure lid sits flush with sides. Secure lid supports with 1-1/4” self-boring wood screws. Do not attach lid to trunk, so it can be lifted for storage.

Working with one short side of trunk, attach one 1 x 2 shelf support, flush with bottom. Support should be exact width of side panel. Secure with three evenly spaced wood screws and repeat on other short side panel. Lay one long side panel flat on work surface and center long 1 x 2 shelf support, flush with bottom. There should be 1-1/2” gap on each end, so it can fit with short side panels. Screw into place with three evenly spaced wood screws. Repeat on other long side panel.

With only a little bit of paint on a 2” angled sash brush, apply a thin coat of milk paint to surface of trunk. This application should be somewhat streaky. Blot or rub in paint with a lint-free cotton cloth to mute appearance of brush strokes, if desired. Tip: A flat acrylic, latex or chalk-type paint may be used as well. Just add water to thin it down to the consistency of a stain.
