A few weeks ago my mother-in-law texted me a picture of some things that she had been storing in her basement and asked if I wanted any of them. Well... you know me, OF COURSE!
There was this funky cool bench/trunk thing that caught my eye right away...
I started taking the seat cover off when I noticed something...
There were little bolts holding the seat on, which told me that the seat itself was an add-on at some point. I got a bit excited at that point, because that meant this might actually be a real steamer trunk! I started pulling more of the padding off to find that this add-on must have been done a while ago...because this?
I decided to just go for it and see what was under that seat, and wouldn't you know? The top is beautiful!
*For the safety conscious - yes, this is what I would call a 'finger chopper' so we will definitely be securing the lid so the boys can't open and close it. I don't plan to put it in an area that they have free reign (they don't go in the mudroom alone) so it should be ok!
Have you ever inherited a cool piece like this from your family members? I'd love to hear about it!
