Over the years I've had many trunks, most of them handed down from relatives or picked up at garage sales. But they've all had one thing in common: trunk smell. Although it might not be a scent you find in your candle aisle at the big box store, you all know what I'm talking about. Solve it with a trunk made of metal!

This trunk made from galvenized sheet metal is sure to keep out the creepy crawlies and even humidity and moisture. It's part of the new collection at CB2. It might be a bit industrial for some homes, but you might love the fact that it doesn't have that usual country crafty charm to it. Instead it's sleek, modern, and ready to fill with love notes or blankets.

It could also be used for an emergency preparedness kit for your home. Seal the inside corners with a bit of epoxy to ensure it's water tight, a great tip if you live in a disaster prone area or want to take the trunk on a camping trip.

Find It: Versus Galvanized Trunk, $149.00 at CB2
