A few months ago, we wrote about Double-Duty Furniture: The Trunk. Obviously we love decorating with trunks, but during our spring cleaning, we were actually debating getting rid of ours. We decided to keep it (because it's so old and worn &mdash in a good way), but, we're not sure how purposeful it actually is.
If any item requires as much space as a trunk, then we question the purpose of it. Living in a narrow rowhome in Philadelphia, you have to be like that. Rowhome dwellers (much like small apartment tenants) don't have the excess room to just bring in a new piece of furniture and forget about it.
But, we realized the storage capabilities of having a trunk. Just about every bookshelf we have is filled, maybe we could take some of the weight off of those.. We also thought about using it as storage for old papers and documents in our office, or maybe even filling it with extra blankets and using it as a coffee table in our living room.
Obviously there are a lot of possibilities for a trunk, but we were wondering what other people use their trunks for. So &mdash what do you keep in your trunk?
