Updating an antique wardrobe trunk

Rated 3.83/5 based on 960 customer reviews

You will notice that there are no feet on the box and I should have attached these before gluing on the strips - put your feet on first before attaching the strips!

The metal brackets holding the leather handles are often secured with nails that have been bent over inside the trunk.Step 3 I had all my 3mm masonite strips cut to the exact length needed.The strips are glued onto the front, sides and back with wood glue.When enough nails have been removed, slide the old leather handle out of the bracket and replace it with the new one.If possible, use the original nails to secure the new handle.
