OMG, look at what I found this weekend at a yardsale for 20 bucks!!!! Click pictures to bigify:
I had been wanting an old trunk to use as a coffee table- our former coffee table, while awesome, is really for a bigger space and plus lacks the ability to store air mattress/guest bedding like my fab trunk can- it will live in storage until a bigger place is found. Special shout out to Gavin and Tony for carrying it the 4 blocks to my house like a pair of lost pirates. Here is trunk of awesomeness in the living room:
20 freakin bucks, people. Gawd, i love a bargain. Of course, I managed to poke a hole in the air mattress only the day before by trying to shove it under my bed, thinking I would never find a trunk for under 200 bucks and so would not be getting one in the near future and therefore needed a space to store said air mattress. Irony, you are truly a nasty ho. But wait, is that really ironic? Or is it merely unfortunate, like all the crap in that Alanis Morisette song? Yeah, just unfortunate. Ironic would be if the trunk itself poked the hole....I think. My head hurts.
