If you want to make your own vintage bedside suitcase table, but do not know how to begin, this is your lucky day because we will give you some steps to follow in order to make your very own bedside suitcase table in your very own backyard as soon as possible. Here are some of the materials that you’ll need.
- Small vintage suitcase
- An old bedside table
- Measuring tape or ruler
- Glue (for wood)
- Hardware and paint
The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you’re able to measure how tall your table should be. You can do this by using a measuring tape or ruler.
Then you can measure your legs from pieces of hardware and cut them down to the right size and height.
After this, you should cut a base for the suitcase. This is where it should be propped securely.
Afterwards, you ought to fasten the legs of the table onto the base that you just cut out.
Then, you should prepare yourself for painting the whole contraption. You can do this by sanding the now made table so that it may look smooth and clean.
After this, you can proceed to paint the table with any color of your choosing. Before painting, though, you have to make sure that you are able to coat the table with a primer.
Next, you can place some screws within the corners of your table to ensure the durability of the finished product.
After this, you can place the suitcase on top of the base and fasten it with a few additional bolts and screws. This way, you can safely do the former without fear that the suitcase will fall eventually.
Now, you can redesign your DIY suitcase table to your liking. You can either paint over the suitcase or just maintain the original look. Whatever you choose to do, you will definitely enjoy this activity, whether on your own or with a friend.
You can either paint your table with a brush or spray paint it. However, if you choose the latter, it will help you to make sure that you do several coatings of the paint to prevent a watery finish.
These are just some of the many DIY crafts that you can do at home without spending too much money. All you need to have is a little bit of creativity and you will definitely go a long way.
