How can I use an old suitcase to make a makeup vanity for my 13 year old granddaughter?
Hi Teresa. I'm Cindy. Attach 4 legs to the bottom of the suitcase. Glue pretty fabric to the inside walls of the suitcase. Also glue a mirror to the inside of the lid. And last but not least, give her some make up, make up sponges, lip gloss, eye shadow, nail polish and combs and brushes. Any 13 year old girl would love to receive this vanity.
Cool idea !!! You can get legs , either metal or wood at home depot or Lowe's . Spray paint the inside , if it needed it . Attach a mirror to the inside top area . Then pick up make up or drawer organizers at the dollar store . Also a hand mirror ! Lucky girl !
You could get the metal hairpin legs to put on the bottom, and then hang a mirror on the wall. https://www.google.com/search?q=hairpin+table+legs&client=opera&hs=Rmr&sxsrf=ACYBGNS0yJsSnNl8E0inFiNGF5Kk5xO6yA:1574827342567&source=lnms&tbm=shop&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiv_9eCwYnmAhU3JDQIHaLKByYQ_AUoAXoECAwQAw I would glue a piece of wood inside at each leg location to screw the legs into for a suitcase.
Here is how I upcycled an old suitcase, If you made the legs longer it might make a great vanity! https://www.homeroad.net/2015/08/repurposed-vintage-suitcase-table.html#more
