Suitcase endtable of another sortOctober 24th, 2009 in member junk
We have seen "end tables" made of stacked old suitcases, but did not have room for that beside our living room chair. We found this nice old hardboard suitcase we liked and wanted it upright in this tight space. So what to do with the latches? I cut 3/4 inch pieces from a one-inch dowel to raise an old glass shelf we had lying around above the latches and applied a sticky circular pad to the top and bottom of the risers, and got ourselves a nice, slim end table just right for a cup of coffee and good novel. Anyone know what the "hardboard" material is that many old suitcases are made of?
