Coffee and Console Tables

It is a smart idea to turn a vintage trunk into a coffee or console table. It has enough flat surface and hidden storage that allows you to keep your stuff inside. It will give you a chic and eye-catching look. Try to paint, stencil, and add detailing to your vintage trunk if it does not match with the style of the interior. If you need the more attractive one, put a couple of trunks on each other, and you will get a double height piece. If you already have a chest, but it does not match to the interior, you can make it a statement or a contrast. You will get an eye-catchy item that will grab everybody’s attention. A trunk can be turned into a console table also. It is usually for a not very wide trunk, and you may place it in a tiny space.
