Show off your tack/grooming trunk!
Just like the title says, show off your tack trunk! Through my internet wanderings, I've seen some really unique ideas and I'm really curious to see what everyone here uses.

If you don't mind, please also include what you like and dislike about the trunk, where you got it and an approximate cost. I'm in the market for a tack trunk, and I'm sure others are too. Help us out!

I love this idea. I've been trying to decide on a tack trunk myself but don't want to spend a fortune on an actual "tack trunk". Can't wait to see what people have.

Post it! Sometimes cheap is just as awesome as anything else. If it does the job, that's all that matters!

Mine is a $60 outdoor storage trunk from Home Depot. It's made of plastic, has a lock and wheels and fits all my tack.
Who needs those fancy wooden ones!

With the outdoor storage one, how have you been putting your saddle without it getting bent out of shape? I would love to try it!

I hope I did this right, where the picture that I uploaded with show. I use this box to keep by extensive brush collection in. The bottom will hold 5 or 6 32oz spray bottles, so I can keep all of my grooming stuff in one place. It doesn't have a lock built in, but it has a place to put a pad lock.

I've been waiting to comment on this thread because until now I've had just a cheap plastic trunk from walmart. I asked for a new junk trunk for my birthday though and today the hubs came through not only big time, but early! My birthday's not until next week, but he was off today so he was able to go pick it up and have it waiting for me when I got home from work! He got a Stanley FatMax Mobile Work Station. I'd admired it a few weeks ago when we went to Lowe's, but was expecting him to get a larger trunk we'd also looked at that had keys with it. So glad he paid attention and got this one instead! A properly trained husband is worth his weight in gold!!! :D

This is the one we got. That's his dog, Millie, checking it out. She approved as well. :)

My whole barn is like a tack trunk xD
But I wish I had a pretty stained-wood trunk D:
