Our coffee table isn't. It's not a table and it's not for coffee. It's not even the right height to put your feet up! I love it though.
My husband bought this trunk at an auction. I love that it's scratched and worn. Perfect for this:
I also use it as a desk as you saw in this post.
You want to know what's in it? Magazines! I'm afraid to put pillows or blankets in it, cuz it smells like moth balls inside, but I don't mind if old issues of Real Simple or Better Homes & Gardens smell a little funny.
We have two proper coffee tables in storage. And by "storage" I mean, taking up random space in the basement. One is currently used near the scary laundry corner to put clean clothes on. The other is at the foot of the bed in the guest
almost finished room and it holds towels and/or suitcases. But this trunk works for now!
What do you use as a coffee table? Something pretty to display more pretties on? Something comfy to rest your feet on? Something repurposed or unique?
My new friend Emily is having a coffee table link party. Stop by!
