Upcycle a Suitcase into a Table

Easy and quick tutorial for turning old suitcase into table at savedbylovecreations.com #upcycle #DIY #crafts #repurpose

This project is one of my favorites so far.  It was free, fast, and the outcome is super cool.  The suitcase was given to me by a friend, the table a curbside find.  Check out how I combined them in a repurpose taking less than 20 minutes.

SUPPLIES

Old Suitcase

Table with surface area that fits under suitcase (this only matters if you are using the legs in the same position as they are in the original table)

Pen

2 inch Construction Screws

Drill

Scrap wood cut small enough to fit inside suitcase, big enough to reach all leg contact points (you will put this in the suitcase and screw through it, the suitcase bottom and into the legs)

TUTORIAL

The details of your table may vary how you have to go about this, but you can do it.  Had my tabletop fit inside of my suitcase, I would have just put int in there and screwed the tabletop through the bottom of the suitcase into the legs.  Since it didn’t, I used scrap wood I had on hand that happened to fit inside and still cover the leg holes.  If you have a miter saw, a more precise (involved) version of the process can be found in this suitcase to table  tutorial from Stacie at Stars for Streetlights (who planted the idea in my head with her fantastic project).  I am satisfied with my 20 minute version!

  1. I also see a recycle suitcase turn into a sofa but I like your idea-making suitcase into a table.

  2. So cool! Now this I can do…I’m sure DH won’t mind if I use a drill…ah what the heck he can even drill the holes for me :) Wish I hadn’t sold those old suitcases in a tag sale last year. Look out goodwill…hope your bags/suitcases are packed!
