Make a Table Out of a Vintage Suitcase

make a table out of a vintage suitcase

This stylish table is not just a conversation piece, it also doubles as hidden storage. There are many different tutorials and techniques online for this project. Basically, to make a table out of a vintage suitcase you will need a suitcase, legs (I bought these from Home Depot), leg mounts, pre measured and cut wood insert, glue, drill and screws. Glue the wood insert to inside bottom of suitcase, attach leg mounts to bottom using drill, then screw in the legs. That is basically it. If you are feeling frisky you can also upholster the inside. I painted the legs with bright blue spray paint to make the piece pop. Have fun with it!

DIY Doorknob Photo Holder

Door Knob Photo Holder

This is a simple shabby chic hack for displaying photographs and/or postcards. In order to make this doorknob photo holder find an old or antique doorknob. One that has outlived its intended purpose. Turn the knob upside down and wrap a 16-18 gauge wire around the circular base tucking and wrapping the loose end a couple times to secure, and to prevent any jagged edge from sticking out. once you have wrapped the wire around the base a couple of times, bend the wire up leaving a couple of inches of straight wire, then bend into a concentric circle which will allow you to clip your photograph or postcard.
