New Coffee... Trunk?

We've been without a coffee table for some time in the family room. It was by choice, toys tend to dominate in here these days, so less furniture meant less cluttered looking. But I was hearing complaints from Sean that he needed somewhere to set a drink (aka rest his feet on) while hanging out.

I was in no rush to just "fill" the spot... but hadn't really thought outside the box (excuse the pun!). I had an antique blanket chest I won at an auction sitting in the garage, when I decided to slap some paint on it and throw Wren's toys inside!

So I did just that, slapped some grey paint on and carted it inside.

I debated putting some new leather straps where there were previously handles, but preferred the clean lines without.

I also wanted to put a "treasure" stamp on the chest, but in the end decided to go with the more subtle "Supplies" label.
Photobucket It was in pretty rough shape initially, so I wanted to do only minimal distressing, mainly just to let some underlying white paint peek through. This lets the dents and dings blend in, but add a little interest at the same time.

Not sure I will be allowing drinks anywhere near my new coffee-trunk though!
