Striped Old Suitcase Table

Yay, finished a little makeover tonight!  Awhile back I made a cute little suitcase table...well I guess no one else thought it was has been sitting in the booth for a bit.  Last week I brought it home.
I thought it would be fun to glam it up a bit with some STRIPES!  I just measured the overall length and then figures out a pattern and marked it.  Then I drew some pencil lines with a scrap piece of cardboard.
Next I filled in the lines in a glossy white.
It isn't perfect, but it did add that bit of character!
Wouldn't it be a fun bed side table?
Luckily the bottom was already black with the shabby white edges, so it paired up nicely.

Have you ever made an Old Suitcase Table?  They are super easy, wanna see how I do it?

Just get some big fender washers and screws.  These I just screw straight into the stand.
If the suitcase isn't perfectly square, just shim the front a bit.

That's it!  See it's pretty easy!  Remember when I made my first one in all white?  You can view that here.

Oh guess what else?  I finally started a Facebook page!  Hopefully you can come follow along!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I'll bet it won't sit around very long now. The stripes were just what it needed. Pretty.
