Decorating Ideas for Travel Addicts: Vintage Suitcase Tables

Some day, when I’ve finished my novel, finally put together the bookshelf that’s been lying in my room since oh, DECEMBER and finished spray-paint decorating my desk chair (that’s been on the DIY art project list for months now), I’ll get around to making a vintage suitcase pet bed. I love these. Here’s a guide on how to make a suitcase table from Good Housekeeping.  It looks pretty simple, no?

    Ha! I love it. I was just thinking to myself "that looks familiar" ... and then realized that I have a green vintage suitcase propped up in my room very similar. It holds my scarves and purses. My dog is too big :-)
