Breanna’s parents pickedup this trunk for her at an antique show for only $10. What a great deal for such a multi-purpose, handsome piece! She added one simple element and is now using this antique in a whole new way.

We can never get enough of coffee tables with storage — they’re so perfect for small spaces — and the addition of a sturdy top really takes the classic trunk table up a notch.

Breanna says, “I knew I wanted to turn it into a coffee table, but wasn’t sure what I wanted to use for the top. My brother had some scrap pine laying around that turned out to be the perfect addition!”
