Decorating Your Trunk Coffee Table

Decorating your trunk coffee table can be an enjoyable and rewarding task. Whether it’s your own trunk that you’ve decided to repurpose as a coffee table or one you’ve just bought, you can give it a new life if you follow these simple steps.

Choosing Your Trunk

The first step to decorating your trunk coffee table is to choose the trunk you want to work with. When choosing a trunk you’ll want to make sure it’s the right size and style for your space. Consider the materials, color, and other features that will make the trunk an accent piece in your room.

Painting & Finish

Once you have chosen your trunk, you can start to give it a new look with paint or finishing wax. Paint is a great way to update the look of a trunk, but if you’re looking for a more authentic look, consider using a finishing wax.


Next, you can start to decorate your trunk with accessories. Consider adding decorative pillows, throw blankets, books, vases, and planters to your trunk.

You can also personalize the trunk by adding a monogram, sticker, photo, or other piece of memorabilia.

Maintenance & Care

To keep your trunk looking great, there are a few simple maintenance steps you should take.

  • Dust It: Regularly dust the trunk and its contents to keep it looking clean.
  • Polish It: Use a finishing wax or furniture polish to protect and enhance the look of your trunk.
  • Clean It: Spot-clean any spills immediately with a soft cloth and mild detergent.

Following these steps will ensure your trunk coffee table looks great for years to come. With a little bit of effort and creativity, you can create a beautiful accent piece for your home.
