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 the style of the interior. If you need the more attractive one, put a couple of logs on each other, and you will get a double height piece. If you 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 chest, and you may place it in a tiny space.

Bedside Tables and Footboard Benches

A vintage trunk can be turned into a fabulous bedside table and will fit whatever style of your bedroom is. All you need is just to retouch it as you need to make it adapt to your bedroom’s style and position it next to your bed. You will get a gorgeous, unique nightstand and chic storage at once. A chest can be turned into a footboard bench also. You can use it to put your things in it and on it. It is very comfortable and will not eat your space. Get inspired!
