LOVE this $80 Pottery Barn inspired console table behind the couch! I want one!
Bench With Storage--Beyond The Picket Fence Style http://bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com/2014/08/bench-with-storage-beyond-picket-fence.html
Wood Pallets...Use it as a coffee table, end of the bed bench, toy box or seasonal clothing storage...Possibilities are unlimited! Handle or pull knob either mounted on top or front...interior opener hinges.
This looks simple enough (says the girl who has never used a power tool).....I've got some old boxes that would look really neat as a trunk.
