I always find it interesting to watch the trends that come and go in the world of antiques. I remember when trunks were popular. Now they're not. But these old pieces shouldn't be overlooked. In fact, they are so useful for turning into entryway or mudroom benches. (And they have storage space!)
I bought this old trunk/box from my friend, Hollie, at her antiques show.
I simply topped it with a standard pillow covered in my favorite vintage Christmas pillowcase and it was instantly transformed into a little bench.
I can easily change the pillowcase to fit the season.
Have a large trunk? Use two pillows or several toss pillows. It's as easy as that!
I found the trunk here.
My floor tile is from Daltile.
My beadboard wall tile, tile base trim, and tile cap is all from Dirk Elliot Tile.
I purchased my wallpaper from Wallflowers in Spokane. I'm sorry, I can't remember the brand.
