Suitcase + Legs = Table

Over at The Weathered Door, Reeves tells us, “I had some different pieces lying around that I loved, but had no practical purpose.”  In her garage, there was a fun-but-broken mid-century mod side table and a vintage suitcase.  One day inspiration struck, and Reeves realized the two could be one.

Reeves started this project by removing the legs from the table.  Next, she arranged the legs the way she wanted them on the under side of the suitcase.  She attached the legs to the suitcase with screws, effectively turning the suitcase into a table!  Now the vintage suitcase with the sexy, mid-century mod legs serves as a bedside table.  I love it!

  1. My mom has a suitcase just like yours, she is always wanting to give it to me, I may have to take her up on it now. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
