DIY- How to turn an old chest into a coffee table. I like the idea of using a trunk as coffee table however, hate the idea of somewhat destroying the trunk. A better idea would be to build a platform on legs or wheels to place the trunk on.
I'd love to do this for a tall/narrow wall table: DIY coffee table. Use old base/legs, remove top, and add your own stained wood top. Now I'll be on the lookout for an old coffee table that I can do this to!
