Hi all! I'm Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Home Decor, a site that specializes in top home decor ideas around the world.
I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and chandeliers. There are few places on the vast internet where you can always find something pretty, but I love that I can on Debbiedoos Blogging and Blabbing.
And I feel privileged to share a post on different uses for vintage trunks.
They can be found on the side of the road, at garage sales and flea markets, or in a grandmother's attic - and yet they are one of the most treasured pieces of furniture. Vintage trunks can take on a number of roles, from that of a table, a storage unit or just one of many decorative home accessories. Here's how:
As a coffee table via DecorpadWhitewashed and the center of attention, this vintage trunk works as a coffee table, with an aged texture and topped with modern table decorations.
As a showpiece via This Charming HouseA cozy home office needs some style infusion, and nothing does the trick like a singular vintage trunk standing solo against a main wall.
As a display via Feather and BranchWith a colourful hand-woven rug backdrop, the eye is immediately drawn to the painted trunk, which can become a display for beloved items like books and knick knacks.
As a dresser via Little Peach VintageAntique trunks with ornate detailing can double as a stunning armoire or bedroom dresser too - the table decorations add personality to the top of the piece, while the storage below provides a place to store clothing.
As toy chests via Mini PiccoliniA coat of paint and a padded cushion transform these vintage trunks into toy chest pieces of furniture - cute and functional!
As an accessory via Home On the RidgeA themed entryway or hall has a distinctly aged look with framed black and white wall art, wrought iron table decorations and quirky odds and ends like the beaten trunk.
As a bench via Home KlondikeA vintage trunk painted in a vibrant hue is given a new lease on life when it's paired with colourful cushions to create a pretty bench.
As a footboard via DecorpadIf a bed has a headboard but no footboard, place a vintage trunk at the end of the bed for a space with an elegant old-school feel.
