DIY Decor: Make A Suitcase Sidetable

I had this suitcase that belonged to an old sewing machine and never really knew what to do with it, until I was in a thrift store and noticed these beautiful wooden table legs. I figured that they would match perfectly. So I decided to make a DIY about it and share it with you!

Method

Spray paint the table legs to make sure the paint will come on evenly.

Draw on the bottom of the suitcase where you want the legs to be positioned.

Cut out small parts in the bottom of the suitcase in the size of the top of the table legs. (Be very precise about where to cut the parts, because this is where you will attach the legs later on!) This will make sure that the ugly top part isn't visible, but actually hidden inside the suitcase. If you're table legs don't have an extra top part like mine, then you can skip this step.

Put some screws in from the inside of the suitcase to attach them.
