The Trunk Settee

The Trunk Settee

We are trunk obsessed. Trunks and Junk.  Basically, we had some legs kicking around, built an interior sturdy frame to keep the frame and legs from poking through the trunk, added the bench, foam and materials.  We are now making the settees with hinged benches to open for hidden storage, depending on the internal depth and foam thickness.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Gypsy Barns Trunk Settee
