Make it Work: Steamer Trunk

What?  Another new series?  I'm on a roll!  I hope you're loving them! In the past I've shown you all the treasures (and some not so much...) for sale on Craigslist, but I though it would be fun to not just show you the piece, but also show you how you can make it work in your own space

This week's treasure:

The steamer trunk

Currently listed on the Boston/North Shore Craigslist for $10.  Seriously $10.  The picture makes it look pretty decent and if the inside is clean and usable, $10 is a steal!
