Q: I have a lovely trunk that I've used in nearly every room of my home. It's nothing special, but I really love it and have a sentimental attachment to it. I have always used it simply as a storage piece (at the foot of the bed, against a wall, etc.) In my new apartment, I'd like to repurpose the trunk in some way — ideally so that it works as both storage and furniture (I'm shorter on space than I was before!):
So I'm looking for ideas and inspiration: how to add height, how to reuse the trunk in my home in a new way. I tried standing it on bricks (ew), and tried balancing it on an old coffee table base (looked like a poor man's MacGuyver). Any other unique ideas to get me started would be fantastic!
