Suitcase Side Table

Since I decided to give my bedroom a refresher I have been looking for a side table that would compliment the style of my room. I wanted something atypical. I thought may be an old vintage metal stool or a thrift find might do the trick but they didn't end up having the look I was going for.

I finally decided to go with a piece that I had made for the Blackout Fest Art show that I was a part of this summer. It added the unique collected vibe to my bedside that I was craving!

I sprayed the suitcase with Restoleum Clear Coat to seal the case and give it a bit of a shine. If you are trying to replicate this I would suggest covering any leather with painters tape to protect it and giving the case two coats of a clear spray paint.

I found these legs on an old table at the Goodwill thrift store by my Mom's place. I only wanted the legs from the table and didn't want to have to haul the whole thing to my car so I asked the store clerk if I could purchase the piece and just remove the legs. For $6 I thought it was worth it! The man thought I was crazy when I pull out my Fuller Switch-A-Bit Screwdriver from my purse and got to

Unique and functional. The case also still opens up and provides a bit of storage for me to stash things away. I'm loving it so far. Let me know what you think!
