I was walking through one of my local thrift stores a couple of weeks ago when I spotted this treasure.
I had been looking for some sort of steamer trunk to use as my husband's night stand. This wasn't exactly what I had in mind originally, but as I stared at the trunk I fell more and more in love with it.
The trunk was $20, plus I had a 25% off coupon for donating. I got the trunk for about $15!!! I came home and did a little research, most brass trunks go for about $300. Now that's a deal!!!
My hubby doesn't love the trunk as much as I do, but he's willing to use it as his night stand.
The trunk has a few dings, but I think it adds to it's charm. The inside lining is in perfect condition and the key was inside. But the key doesn't work on the lock. That's ok though because I don't foresee myself locking the trunk any time soon.
