I love, LOVE vintage suitcases. What is better than a vintage suitcase......
A Vintage Suitcase Coffee Table
This project is fairly cheap and takes less than 15 minutes to do!
Lets get to it...
What You Will Need:
Vintage Suitcase (Preferably one made of wood. Plastic works too!)
Waddell Straight (or Angle) Top Plate Hardware (4)
4 inch Tapered Table Legs (4)
Optional: Spray Paint or Paint for the Legs
*You can use table legs that are bigger. I used 4" table legs for this project*
*Go to a hardware store, like Ace Hardware, to buy the Hardware. I went to Lowes and Home Depot and neither of them had the correct Top Plate Hardware. They did had a large table leg selection though.*
Begin by turning the suitcase upside down and placing a piece of hardware on each corner
Make sure each Top Plate is bubble side up:
*If you are using Angle Plates make sure the leg hole is pointing in the right direction before drilling the screws in*
Measure the hardware and mark its spot, so each piece is in the same spot.
I placed my Top Plate 4 inches from the bottom of the suitcase:
Screw each Top Plate down. Once you have done this screw in the legs and turn it over:
How easy was that!?
