We were given this old chest by close family, but it didn't really fit with anything. Given it was a gift we were a little stumped on what to do with so thought upcycling it in true Junk Market fashion would allow a happy medium.

So we took a plain wooden chest, gave it a more worn look and turned the top into a seat.
