Tip & How-To about Luggage & Travel
Making your old travel trunk into a coffee table can be a very good feature to add to your decore and can be a great conversation starting piece. The best part is that turining it into a coffee table is not a very difficult thing to do.
Most travel trunks are a little too short to be a proper coffee table so you are going to want to find some table legs that you like and cut them down to the height that you want the table to be at. If they are wood you can even stain them to match the trunk or other furniture in your house.
Things you are going to need:
- A travel trunk
- 4 table leg straight top plates
- 4 table legs
- screws and a drill
If you are going to stain the legs then you should stain the legs before you start and allow them to dry.
Using the drill screw the table leg plates to the corners on the underside of the trunk. Once the legs dry screw them into the leg plates and flit the trunk over. And walla! you have a brand new vintage coffee table.

The functionality your coffee table offers depends on your needs. If you're
looking for a multifunctional coffee table you should look for coffee tables with additional shelves,
drawers or compartments if you need them to double up for storage. Also you should look for
trunks and ottomans that can offer
lots of storage. In Some tables they have surfaces that can be raised for
working or eating so you should check it out.
