I’m all about furniture that serves dual purposes, especially when that includes STORAGE! I knew I wanted some kind of antique trunk as a side or coffee table in our family room and was constantly searching Craigslist for a good deal because there was NO way I’d pay the $200-300 the local antique stores wanted for theirs.
Then one night while at dinner with my hubby, I was waiting to order, scrolling through listings on my iPhone. And there it was. But at just $40 I was certain it was a typo or a scam. Luckily, a few messages back and forth later, I was on this stranger’s doorstep the next afternoon picking up my new treasure. Apparently he and his wife are empty-nesters and are downsizing. Since it worked in my favor, I’m very happy for them! 🙂

Not only does it pack loads of character, it holds LOTS of extra blankets we keep just in case the power ever goes out mid-winter in some freak storm since we DO live in Alaska and it DOES get VERY cold here. Plus if my rough-n-tumble fur kiddos crash into it with their play sessions no one but me will be able to tell!
