i also have 3 awesome old trunks

one i have just stacked my collection of magazines, they're the free ones you can find outside of some clothes and music shops and they're A3 so they fit perfectly

the other two i just store memories, smaller boxes of old letters, diaries, perfumes, drawings etc
on top is a smaller one which i keep my drawings in with a massive knitted winter jumper stuffed in, overflowing

i really love it's look :]

We are talking about postage stamps and not rubber stamps, correct?

If you have any exotic or international ones, you could make a journal about the fictional travels of some historical figure (real or fictional character) or of your own. Age/distress the pages before you put the stamps on, unless the stamps are bright white.

Make a travel journal for you or someone you know who's going to take a big trip somewhere. Just paste one stamp in a corner of every few sheets of paper, interspersed with travel quotes and little glued-in envelopes to hold/collect ticket stubs, new stamps, and other ephemera during the journey.

Or put a couple on the cover of an otherwise blank book. Or a thin lampshade. Adding just a stamp or two can be a subtle elegant personalization.

If you like the coffee table idea but don't want to seal the stamps, lay out all the stamps on the tabletop and then cover it with a sheet of plexiglass. Securing the plexiglass in place is the slightly difficult part, if its a thick table. You could also do this with bookshelves.

You can always use them as barter in swaps!

Had a whole hunk of postage stamps and decoupaged them to a not-so-wonderful table top. 
See my blog for hardly any more detail.
