Is It Wednesday already? This week is really flying by for me! I have completed my first makeover for the week. I picked up this trunk/coffee table at my local thrift store for $8. Pretty sweet deal, huh?
Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of sanding involved in this makeover.
This was a great piece of furniture because it had all of the great function of a trunk, but it opens in the front. What more could you ask for? I am a huge fan of trunks as coffee tables, and this is the perfect design for a trunk coffee table.
I knew that I wanted to do something in black. I have recently had several customer requests for black pieces. Basic black is just not very much fun to me and I wanted to add some interest. When I am saw
over at A Few Good Pieces, I headed to Home Depot to see about those vinyl backsplash pieces. Unfotunantly, for the amount I would have had to have it would just overprice my makeover. While in Home Depot I picked up a roll of paintable patterned wallpaper. This is another product I had absolutely no experience with. The wallpaper was more cost efficient at less that $14. I have never used wallpaper for anything~zero experience! Let me say, I am in love with this stuff. It went on super easy, the hardest part for me was cutting straight and matching the pattern. I had to redo several pieces!
Love all that storage!
