Stacked Suitcase Table Coastal Theme, Repurposed Storage Table Set

Hand Painted Stacked Suitcase Table

hand painted suitcases
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 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...

spray painted drawer pulls
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...

wooden spindles as furniture legs
I gave the legs the same mottled colors in the coral color as well...

keepsake storage using vintage suitcases
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!
