Just because a piece looks dated doesn't mean you need to get rid of it. Case in point, this Lane cedar trunk. There was really nothing structurally wrong with this trunk when I got it. But the black vinyl upholstered seat was hideous and the gold swivel wheels didn't add anything to the piece and actually were so small that the trunk sat too low for my liking.
I got out the paint, picked up a new fabric and ordered some chunky solid wood feet. Nothing about this trunk is hideous now---in fact I think it's classier then ever!
