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...

Step 1: What You Will Need

What You Will Need:
Power Drill
Vintage Suitcase (Preferably one made of wood. Plastic works too!)
Measuring tape
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.*

Step 2: Lets Begin

1.Begin by turning the suitcase upside down and placing a piece of hardware on each corner

2. 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*

3. 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.

4. Screw each plate in.

5. Screw in the legs


Now you have your very own vintage suitcase coffee table!!
