Finished trunk. The doorknob and plate are from my Junk Swap!! Just what it needed... 
Heres the vision coming together. The back window was painted black, so thats what inspired the decoupaging in the next picture! 
Pages torn from a Sears and Roebuck catalog. If only bikes could still be found for $10.75! 
You can see the pages through the front windows. Love it!

The cabinet door inspired this piece, I knew it would be a trunk of some sort. Had the windows, and it all came together. The doorknob from Byabpryor in the Junk Swap was exactly what it needed for a handle! And instead of fighting the black painted on some of the window panes, I just painted the whole thing black on the inside, and added decoupaged catalog pages that can be seen through the front windows.
