The Hires Trunk


“Introducing our latest vintage treasure – a one-of-a-kind coffee table trunk that’s sure to be the talk of the town! Measuring 34 inches wide, 15 inches high, and 12.5 inches deep, this small but stylish trunk is the perfect addition to any living room, study, or bedroom.

We found this gem at a local auction house and knew it had the potential to be something truly special. We brought it home, sanded it down, and made any necessary repairs. This time, we decided to paint only the bottom part of the trunk, leaving the top natural and adding a stain to enhance the beautiful wood grain. The result is a striking contrast between the sleek, modern look of the painted bottom and the warm, natural beauty of the top.


But the real showstopper is the custom paint job my husband did on the trunk. Inspired by vintage root beer ads, he hand-painted a stunning design that features blue, yellow, and red hues. The graphics are eye-catching and unique, and the linen color of the trunk provides the perfect backdrop for the vibrant colors to pop.

But it’s not just the paint job that makes this trunk stand out – it’s also the hairpin legs. We added four sturdy, solid hairpin legs that can hold up to 500 lbs, giving the trunk a sturdy base that’s both functional and fashionable. The modern look of the hairpin legs perfectly complements the vintage charm of the root beer graphics, creating a truly one-of-a-kind piece of furniture.

This trunk is a steal at just $125! Whether you use it as a coffee table, side table, or storage trunk, this piece is sure to be a conversation starter. Its unique blend of modern and vintage elements makes it a versatile addition to any home, and its sturdy construction ensures that it will last for years to come. Don’t miss out on the chance to make this trunk a part of your home – it’s a true treasure that won’t be found anywhere else!”
