    I like the concept here. The first thing I think of is how that tree actually fits in the trunk lol.
  • Jerilynn Bokor La Mesa, CA
    Love the idea. We have a small area in family room and we decided not to bring out the big tree this year.

    Jeff the tree stand fits perfectly in the bottom of this trunk. I had the right size for this tree!

    I really like the entire idea of putting the tree base in the trunk. What a wonderful change up on the usual--it also hides the base so nicely and keeps things fresh. Thank you for the great idea!

    Great idea, especially if it's a small, fake tree. The trunk can double as tree storage when you're done. We use an old trunk as a coffee table/ storage unit.
