What do you get if you have a table with a questionable top and a suitcase?
A perfect conversation piece for your home... shabby chic at it's best.
How did I do it?
Well, I had this table given to me... good bones... cosmetically questionable. But I loved it's lines.
And I had this suitcase begging for a purpose..
I put the bottom of the suitcase on top of the table and measured each side until I knew it was centered. Using pilot holes, I drilled five fat screws straight through the suitcase into the table top.
I then flipped the suittable (cute, huh?) over and painted the bottom sides.
I chose Coastal Colors Turks to make a beautiful statement.
My customers LOVE Turks and I can't keep anything too long in this color!
After painting it... I knew I wouldn't the character and hardware to be highlighted with dark wax... See the difference and how much CHARACTER the dark wax gives the suittable?
|I love that you can almost "see" every trip this suitcase has traveled!|

Here is the final suittable.
