If you have an old metal trunk lying useless, you can easily turn it into a coffee table or bench.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Primer for metallic surfaces
Enamel paint(or any paint for metallic surface)
Brush For painting
Small size furniture legs or curtain finials that can be used as legs.( I used egg shaped red wooden curtain finials as legs)
Step 2: Drill One Hole at Each Corner on the Bottom
Sorry I dont have a picture of holes but it is a fairly simple step. Just turn your trunk upside down and drill a hole at each corner leaving a margin of 2 inches.
Step 3: Apply a Coat of Primer and Paint the Trunk
Apply a coat of primer. Let it dry and then apply three coats of paint. Let it dry after each coat.
Step 4: Fix Legs
In the holes drilled at all four corners fix your furniture legs or curtain finials. That's all.
