Suitcase Coffee Table

by Caroline Huth I go to estate sales every weekend and often find old suitcases for under $5 that I can’t resist. Usually they are beautiful and solid as a rock, but are just too heavy to be functional for travel these days. Stacking them up as end tables is fine, but I like to make them even more practical by affixing casters to the bottom. They become small rolling tables, perfect for your next soiree.

You’ll Need:

1 old suitcase (the larger and sturdier the better)

4 pieces of 2" x 4" wood (see instructions below for lengths)

8 wood screws 4 casters, 2-3" long

20 machine screws at least 1" long to fit into casters

For a shoebox apartment, one large suitcase can be both your main coffee table and some much-needed storage. For a larger place, several mismatched tables (or, heck, matched and monogrammed) can be grouped together, or even stored under a larger table. The best news is that most of the storage capacity is still intact, so while on top they hold your martinis and caviar, inside you can stash anything you don’t want your guests to see.

Saw (or have wood cut at hardware store)

Drill Screwdriver (or driver bit for drill)

208 lost and found
