Suitcase Table

We decided to get rid of our couch in the rv so we'll feel like we have more space.  The only problem was that the couch supplied storage room for all my crafts.  Soooo, we went on the hunt for some sort of chest to store my stuff.  As we were walking around a flea market in Derby, KS I saw something that I'd seen on Pinterest.  A "luggage table".

We found 2 different sizes in some blue vintage luggage.  I ripped out the lining in one of them. But the other looked like it'd never been used and smelled fine, so I left it in there.

We picked out some paint to go with the inside of the camper and David took care of painting them for me.  He added legs to the larger one.  We considered just finding a small bedroom luggage stand for them.  But we really like the look with the legs.  The smaller case just sits on top of the larger one.
It's a perfect fit in the corner under a window.

I bought some flannel and relined the one suitcase that had the yucky lining.  I used Tacky Glue.

 Now we're on the lookout for a round vintage travel bag to go on top!


  1. Hi, Mala,
    My husband placed blocks of wood on the INSIDE of the case (as shown in one of the pix), then screwed the legs in from the bottom.
