While scouring one of my favorite Antique Malls, I came across a beautiful antique trunk. I have seen many trunks in my antique/thrifting adventures, but this one caught my eye because of its color. And it was only $60!
When I brought it home, I had not decided if it was going to live in my house or go to my own antique booth.
I’ve decided. 😉 It’s a keeper!!
It just needed to be a bit higher. Not wanting to just add feet directly to the trunk, (I couldn’t bear to drill holes in it!) I made a base frame for the trunk to sit on, then adding feet to the frame. I don’t have pictures of the frame, but you can see from the picture it’s a simple rectangle structure, a few inches shorter than the trunk, with a brace in the middle for support. The trunk just sits on top of the base, no damage done.
This trunk is one of my favorite pieces I’ve picked up so far! I may be redecorating the family room with colors to coordinate with the trunk! 🙂
