I bought this green wood trunk several years ago at a local thrift store for $10. It sat on my porch for three years begging for a rehab. When we moved into our new place we were in need of a coffee table, and the trunk was the perfect piece to transform!
I decided to use a flat black paint on the trunk. I wanted the piece to blend in with the living room not stand out. When I was done painting I went back through and roughed up the edges, so it had a slightly used look. I added two handles I had from an old window project I did a few years ago.
