Buy some plywood and trace the bottom of the suitcase so the plywood will slip right in. It helps to have a handy dandy tool man dad who can make the cut for you.

Paint the table legs and the plywood in whatever color you want. I painted them in Annie Sloan's Napoleonic Blue and then waxed them with dark wax.

    Hi! I've been wanting to do this with 2 old suitcases I have but have not been able to find the legs. Where did you buy the ones you used?

    Would you consider using Cedar? It would be a better alternative. I've got an OLD trunk that need re-vaped all the way around. I'm going to use Cedar instead of plywood. Cedar adds a nice smell and looks better.

    Where can I find the heavy plates to hold the legs on? I’ve been to two hardware stores and they don’t have anything like that?

      Amazon has about everything if you don't have a Home Depot or Lowe's nearby.
