Thrifty Thursday: Suitcase Side Table


Earlier this month, my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and I took a trip to Round Top.
If you have heard of this place/event before- you know how amazing it truly is.
I was in pure heaven.

I came back with lots of goodies.

Vinyl Records - 5 for $10
Vintage ruler - $12
Brass candlesticks - $13
Mercury Lamp & Bowls - $25
Vintage Suitcase - $20

I had big plans for the suitcase!

Here is what I turned it into!
I purchased a DIY 24" barstool from Walmart -  $12 bucks
A can of spray paint - $6
(I wanted the color to closely match the hardware on the suitcase)

(Diaper boxes come in very handy for all my spray painting projects)
Once the barstool was dry, I put it together (minus the round top portion) and used a couple of pieces of Velcro to adhere the suitcase to the top of each leg.

*You could screw the suitcase to the legs also. But just incase I want to use the suitcase for something else- I opted out.
Here is our new bed side table.
And all for under $40 Dollars!
Happy Hunting!
