Vintage Trunk Ideas on Hometalk

Recently, I painted my old steamer trunk, and turned it into a coffee table.

I still giggle every time I see my son's worried face : )

I had moved this trunk from room to room in two different homes...

 ...and finally decided it needed to be cute and useful. 

Judging from the response I've gotten to this project, alot of you really like the idea of using vintage trunks and suitcases, too. 

When Hometalk asked me to curate a board of vintage trunk ideas, I was super excited to work on it! There are so many creative ideas for decorating with-and making things out of-vintage trunks. I think you'll love these projects as much as I do!

How about this genius use of an old trunk as a wall shelf? How do people think these things up....

I put together a board of 17 Vintage Trunk Ideas that I hope will inspire you to think about how you can use these old beauties in a new way! Come visit me over at Hometalk, and let me know what you think, ok?

I hope you're having a wonderful week, friends! See you soon-
