Vintage wooden trunk coffee table 1940s restored.
I found this trunk in a market in need of some restoration and tlc.
When I started to sand it down I realized I was revealing a lot of the original writing.
I therefore decided to only sand it down gently, keeping its original paint and wtiting.
I painted the inside of the trunk a vintage dark green to give it a fresher look and added 2 ropes in the inside to keep the lid open and 2 on the sides to replace the missing handles.
Fortunately the trunk still retains its original metal closing mechanism and hinges.
I think that because of its size this trunk would be perfect as a coffee table, providing any room with a bit of quirkiness as well as handy storage.
