The Perfect Solution

 I’ve been needing a coffee table in my front living area for two years.
I’m okay with waiting two years for something if it means that I can get the look that I want.
We found this old trunk a couple of months ago at a garage sale for five bucks.
Originally, we brought it home and put it at the end of our middle son’s bed.
But, as you learned in this post, we’ve switched some rooms around this summer.
I realized in the room changes that this trunk would be the perfect solution to our lack of coffee table.

So, here it is sitting in our front living area looking perfectly at home.  for now.

Happy Weekend Friends….
