Hello! So I have been wanting to do this for a while but couldn't not find an antique bentwood trunk in decent shape. I'm not sure this is allowed here but I have seen some pretty amazing turns of all sorts of trunks, I just happened to make mine a theme replica (with legs)!
I found this gem about an hour away and aside from being painted white with a map of Oregon plastered on it, this was perfect! The canvas was still all intact, the locks work, it opens and closes nicely, I mean this was great! Up here in Oregon these really are hard to find.
But I have a friend who is die hard Harry Potter, and I knew I could make this for her. So as a gift, I made this into a replica fan made Harry Potter trunk coffee table, or what ever she wants to use it for.
But I thought it turned out better than my expectations, and I just had to share it!!!
I hope it's ok on here, I mean it is an antique trunk and I did refinish it. LOL
