Suitcase Table

I've been seeing these is quite a few magazines lately, and they are really expensive. And I thought, hmmm, I can totally make those.

So off to the D.I. I went. I found the suitcases for around 5.00-6.00 each. Sorry I only took a picture of one. I don't know why.

Then I went to Lowe's to buy table legs. These were $4ish each. Then I painted them and distressed them.

I drilled through the biggest suitcase and made holes big enough for the screw to fit through that was on the table legs.

Next I screwed the table legs into the newly drilled holes. Then I used a bolt to secure them in the suitcase.

Then I repeated the same steps with the next suitcase, instead of bolting the suitcase to the table legs, I bolted it to the first suitcase.
Voila!! Perfecto!!

  9. I have a blue suitcase that sits by our TV, I have been trying to figure out if I should stack more old suitcases on it-to make it taller. But I love this idea so much better. I am going to lowes and make me one with my blue suitcase. Thanks you have so many cute ideas. I also need some vinyl. I need to call you!
