    My Pirates Chest

    This was a winter project...Trunk had been sitting in my mothers attic since about 1900....was totally brown with rust from the humidity....
    So I hauled it home and worked on it over the winter....The roses stamped into the tin are just beautiful...After painting it, I hand painted all the hasps,metal work with pure copper paint. Now I have something to put all my plundered booty in!

    I don't know how I missed this post. That is one beautiful chest. Great job on fixing it up. Perhaps you will be good enough to show us your booty sometime?

    I love it! The tin is awesome!
    I have 3. But nothing as nice as that, and none have any of the compart pieces.
    Make sure we see it when it's done

    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
    you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer,
    never give up then for that is just the place and time that
    the tide will turn.
