So…. since I De-constructed my coffee table to make a TV stand, I needed a new coffee table. I wanted something unique, but with storage. So, I was wondering aimlessly through my house and I saw an old trunk that I was storing some extra blankets in. So I pulled it out and with some scrapbook paper from my local Micheal’s, some Mod Podge and an exacto knife and I have a brand new coffee table!!
Items I used:
Scrapbook Paper (Micheal’s)
Mod Podge (Micheal’s)
Exacto Knife (Micheal’s)
Liquid nails (Walmart)
Furniture feet (Home Depot)
Mod Podge the scrap book paper to the surface of the trunk. Once the paper was mod podge’d to the trunk, I used an exacto knife to cute the paper around all the intricate brackets and edges.
Once I had all the paper mod podged on the trunk, I took the feet and painted them. Once they were dry I used the liquid nails and placed the feet on the bottom of the trunk. Ignore the red base! I didn’t want to cover the bottom, since no one should ever see it!! lol
After the feet dried for about 12 hours, I flipped the trunk over and then let the weight of the trunk to set the feet just a little bit more. Here is a picture of the final product. I will post a better one once I am finished rearranging my living room!!
