Project Spotlight: Vintage Suitcase Table

My goal for this blog has always been to share my projects in hopes of inspiring you to get creative. Sure my projects may not be perfect but hey that’s called character, right? Plus I learn from each furniture/craft/wedding project I work on and am just happy to be back into my creative groove, which I fell out of for quite some time.

I am constantly inspired by the projects I see on other blogs as well as on online communities such as Pinterest and HomeTalk. For this reason, I am now accepting project submissions from readers and other bloggers that I think you will enjoy.

Today I am sharing my first project spotlight, a Vintage Suitcase Table Tutorial, which was submitted by Angelique of Live Life. Create Dreams. Check this baby out!

You have probably seen similar projects online but most simply include a photo with no detail on how to make your own. That’s what makes Angelique’s post so special, she gives an in-depth tutorial on how she made a thrifty suitcase find into a customized side table. She even shows you how she reupholstered the interior!

I don’t know about you, but nearly all the vintage suitcases I come across have pretty rough interiors and don’t smell like roses. So be sure to head over to Live Life. Create Dreams to read the full tutorial, and check out her other awesome projects!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you, Angelique, for sharing your wonderful project and tutorial!

  • Katie, Thank you so much for featuring my tutorial! I have really enjoyed reading about your DIY projects. I think what I love most about your blog and your projects is that it shows how one can be thrifty by upcycling and repurposing an item into a unique piece that can make a home our own by finding the inner beauty of dated pieces (aka someone elses cast offs). I’m also “borrowing ” a few of your wedding ideas for my 20th anniversary vow renewal ceremony (can’t believe it’s only 3 years away).

    • That is so awesome that you will be doing a vow renewal ceremony and congrats! I hope Eric and I can follow in your footsteps someday 🙂 I still can’t believe we are FINALLY getting married in just about 2 months, woo-hoo! I’m so happy you enjoy my blog but don’t really know what I’d be doing if I didn’t have so much inspiration surrounding me from projects other people have done. It’s hard not to feel like a copycat when so many things have already been thought up. Regardless, it’s still fun to put your own spin on things and make them more personal. That’s one thing I love about our home, it’s filled with projects I have tweaked, even if just a little 🙂 Thanks again for sharing your suitcase table!
