DIY Coffee Table Ottoman

Hello Sweet Friends!

It’s time again for our monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge where several bloggers and myself take on creating something new from something old. I’ve had so much fun with this and hope you have enjoyed checking out all the great projects every month.

Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge

The Rules:

  • Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
  • There’s no monthly theme.
  • There’s no budget to stick to.

Coffee Table Options

I think every room needs a table of some kind, whether it’s just to add to the decor, putting your drinks on, or just for putting your feet up.  Tables can add a lot of personality to a room.  

I have been looking for a small coffee table option for my living room, something not too big, but with personality.  I had this suitcase in my flea market show inventory and decided it would be perfect.  I found some perfect legs at the thrift store, drilled holes into the bottom of the case (Yikes! That was hard to do to such a lovely, old piece.), inserted the legs and screwed them in place.
