I know suitcase tables have been done plenty of times before but I wanted to share my project anyway. I had wanted to do this kind of project for a long time and just about burst when I walked around the corner at an indoor fleamarket and saw this large vintage suitcase for $10! It had quite a musty smell inside but I was able to clean out most of that. I attached some school desk legs that added a certain uniqueness and great support. The table looked great but needed something more so I decided to stencil the top. The suitcase still had a Boston tag on it from Eastern Airlines so of course that had to stay. Cool table with great storage!
