Animal Trunk - Phase 1

So, I bought the trunk and paints yesterday and have been seriously coating the trunk in paint. I have three coats on it now and may go for one more to make it more navy (in the picture the trunk only had two coats). So, I am waiting for the animal pieces, some are due in on Thursday but I will wait until I have all of them. I have the paint colors I picked, but I am thinking of leaving out the orange. What do ya'll think? Or should I go with different colors all together?

Oh, and Christine the company Martha links to for the animal pieces has lots of cute things, even a princess category, so your sister could do a seriously cute girly one if she wanted!

Maybe small touches of the orange. I think it works. Excited to see it!!

Glad you posted your opinion Frances! Was hoping you'd see this! I guess I want this thing to be something he may potentially keep for a long time, you don't think the orange makes it look too juvenile?
