DIY Suitcase Side Table

$12
Easy

I found a vintage suitcase at a garage sale and loved the character it had, but on it's own it had no functionality. In order to make the suitcase into something more practical, I used the legs off of a broken mid century table, and attached them to the suitcase to make a side table. It is the perfect piece to use as my new nightstand, and it only took an hour!
