DIY Vintage Suitcase Table
One fact about my mom: she is a hardcore Pinterest pinner. She is also really good at choosing/making gifts for Christmas. (I mean really good.) Last year my mom picked up on my love for stacking suitcases and painted some suitcases white for me. This year, inspired by Pinterest of course, my mom and dad made me this amazing table from an old suitcase.

    My dad made the legs and base and my mom painted and redid the inside of the suitcase. My parents are pretty crafty folks. :)

    To redo the inside, my mom used upholstery fabric, cut it to size, and then used some hot glue. All of the suitcases I bought for myself have the original (sometimes iffy) lining inside them. The ones from my mom are all pretty and nice-smelling. :)

This seems to be getting to be a style to use these suitcases for different kinds of furniture. It's very interesting to see Happy
