I didn’t get a before picture of this suitcase, and the fun the previous child owner had with it. Thankfully the drawings and writing were left to the front and back, not the sides, making it pretty easy to recover. Another unplanned savior was that this suitcase has a plastic lip around the edges where I was able to hide the edge of the wallpaper.Read more
i recently ran across this suitcase coffee table on Design Sponge, and immediately fell in love!
the suitcase i found was about $1 at the Goodwill Outlet, and i ended up getting the legs on Ebay for $10 after not being pleased with the selection at the hardware store. my suitcase wasn’t as sturdy as the one in the Design Sponge tutorial, so i cut rounds of a tree limb, placed them on the inside of the suitcase, and screwed the leg plates into those. the suitcase has a bit of a curve to it, so the legs flare out a bit. i might fill it with stones to give some added support. it’s definitely the perfect porch table i’ve been looking for.
BONUS: it matches the front door!
