I have had a wicker trunk since I was young. It went back and forth to college with me (one time full of books, which was when I learned to pack books in smaller boxes). I still have it, though the top is a bit worse for wear.
My vision for this trunk has been for it to have an upholstered top and function more like a bench. Now instead of just imagining it (like I have for at least a decade) I’m going to do it. Watch this space for updates!
