A unique coffee table with storage is a dream for some people. Jeanette from creatingalifenow shows us how she took an old steamer trunk and with only a few steps, created a beautiful coffee table with ample storage for linens, quilts, and whatever else you have that needs a home.
Jeanette began her project by using a white latex paint she already had to paint the steamer trunk, leaving the wood slats free of paint. Metal legs from an old stool became the new legs for the trunk once she painted them white to match the trunk. The legs were screwed on to the bottom of the trunk after Jeanette added a couple of pieces of scrap wood to the inside floor of the trunk to give the screws someplace to adhere to securely.
Finally, Jeanette decoupaged those wood scraps as well as the rest of the inside of the trunk with old sheet music and other scrapbook papers.
