All Things New Sundays - DIY Coffee Table + Giveaway Winner!

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Today is officially the first post of my All Things New Sundays series! I am so excited to share my first project with you: a DIY suitcase coffee table! I saw this suitcase at a local thrift store and instantly knew that it would make the most perfect coffee table:




I purchased the legs from Lowe's. They have a great selection of coffee table legs. The last thing I need to do is stain the legs. I want to stain them a darker brown to match the border on the suitcase.








This suitcase can be used as a coffee table or at the foot of your bed. I love how it turned out and it was such a simple project!
Why buy a brand new coffee table when you can make one that is unique and made out of something that was once considered old and donated to a thrift store!

Suitcase: $35.99
Legs and accessories: 25.00
Total cost of DIY project = $60.99


AND now time to announce the winner of my Vintage Jewelry/Antique teacup giveaway!

The lucky winner is Megan from


Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for my next All Things New Sundays post next week!

I can't even tell you how ridiculously cool I think that is. I would never see a suitcase and think "oh, that would be a good coffee table," but I adore the idea and am officially on the hunt for a cool suitcase to make into a coffee table ASAP :)
