Rustic DIY Wood Storage Trunk

Larissa from Prodigal Pieces says she isn’t one to buy new-looking furniture.

She likes her furniture to look like it has a story to tell!

Larissa was smitten as soon as she saw a distressed storage trunk from Pottery Barn that was inspired by an antique store trunk.

She worked alongside her husband to replicate the beautifully-worn piece of furniture for only $90 instead of $499!

Here’s from Larissa: “I am so happy with how it turned out, and love that we did it ourselves. It’s rustic, is new, but looks old, and perfectly ready for blankets, boots, bedding…anything!”

Larissa was inspired by Pottery Barn’s Josefa Distressed Trunk.
