This antique trunk was our very first
Truthfully, I was afraid that a real antique would be stinky and full of bugs. (I have a bit of a bug phobia.)
A few years ago on one of our little road trips, Alex and I stopped in a little town to shop. While this town is usually bustling in the summertime, at that time of year, March, it was more like a ghost town.
Alex and I saw this trunk in an Antiques shop and after several nervous whispers, decided to buy it. We plopped it in the backseat of our then-car and drove home with smiles. We did it!
Right now it's in our living room being used as a small coffee table. The great part about it is that it's so dinged and dented already that I didn't freak out when my inlaws' dog scratched the whole front of it in a play fight with Roary.
It's also the perfect spot to store all of our board games and cards. Secret: I love board games but no-one ever wants to play them with me. Boo hoo!
