Hand Painted Stacked Suitcase Table
This project actually started with two vintage suitcases that I previously
painted along with a wooden box that one of my sisters gave me.
I'm a big fan of repainting things when I want to change things up!
Here they are all primed and I added feet cut from decorative wooden spindles.
I screwed the legs in from the inside of the bottom suitcase
I painted a mottled background with watery stripes....
....added a seahorse
I stacked them together when painting to create a single image.
They aren't attached together, just stacked and great for storage.
I finished off the tops of the suitcases by connecting the stripes...
...it created a plaid-like pattern
I spray painted a brass colored pull I had to match the coral.
and attached to the wooden box on top.
I adore red and aqua color combos...
I gave the legs the same mottled colors in the coral color as well...
Mine aren't painted but I use 3 vintage suitcases to store
my two boys childhood mementos. We don't have an attic so these are in the
closet under the stairs and look nicer than cardboard boxes.
The top one is a textured crocodile pattern, the middle, a vintage Amelia Earhart yellow
suitcase and on the bottom, a very deep vintage Starline suitcase... love them all!
This piece is sold.
