I have an old trunk. For the first few weeks we lived here, it was relegated to sitting by the door. I had no idea where I was going to put it. When I recently reorganised the living room, I found that I had an empty corner. So I put it there in the corner with a throw over it. The kids have been loving it. It has been a stage, a bench, a dance floor, and a place to snuggle. Just today I took pics of the girls as they used it.
