I have this great old trunk that I really love. it's kind of like an old Pirate's trunk.
It's neat isn't it?
It has a very slight curve to the top but is still straight enough to use as a coffee table.
I was thrilled to find this piece because it is perfect for my needs.
I absolutely enjoy using it, whenever I am at the shore.
I like to drink my coffee in this room, and gaze out at the Ocean.
Currently, it is empty inside, because it really needs to be freshened up.
But I love the details on the exterior!
My plan is to re- do the inside with a nice covering of fresh fabric.
Then it will be a great storage place for all the extra blankets we need to have around for guests.
Our Beach Cottage is small, so whenever possible, furniture needs to do double duty.
This is how it looks in the sun room.
A storm was rolling in so the pics are a bit dark, but even on a grey day,
it is gorgeous to watch the clouds roll across the water.
I was wondering if I should leave it as I found it, or if I should consider the thought of painting it white.
I am kind of liking the dark contrast to all my other light or white stuff though.
Should I leave it unpainted, and just re do the inside, or should I paint it white?
And which fabric gets your vote for the interior?
