I visited a couple of my favorite thrift stores in the past couple of days and spied a few really interesting vintage trunks. I would love to have a trunk style coffee table for our cabin, but I think first I should worry about putting regular furniture in it first (ie. tables, chairs, couches, etc… yes, we have no place to sit!!)
Here were my finds:
From Community Forklift (http://www.communityforklift.com/) a neat old trunk that had “1897” stenciled on the top:
From the Habitat for Humanity Montgomery County Restore (http://www.habitat-mc.org/restore/)
This one was also at Restore and very cool – complete with stickers and lined inside. Nice!
Now for the interesting coincidence! Today I received a tutorial on DIY projects for the weekend – featuring how to make a table from an old suitcase. So here you go!
