Luggage night stand

My daughter Jessica, found this idea I believe on Pinterest and when she told me, I thought that it was a ridiculous idea, until she explained it to me, and then the light in my head went on. So we went to thrift shops and garage sales and found 3 good pieces of luggage, they had to be the non-collapsible kind, and cleaned and painted them(with fusion spray paint) found some old belts, and put it together, I also put empty gallon paint cans inside each suitcase for extra support. I took a piece of plywood and added legs, then attached it to the bottom suitcase. I reinforced the suitcases with paneling and bolted them together to make a nice nightstand for her dorm room

This turned out fantastic! The colors you chose for the piece really add a nice, classic look. Very smart to add the extra support with empty paint cans. Did you use anything to keep those in place?

Yea well I used left over 1/4 inch paneling to line the top and bottom of each suitcase and I was going to bolt them together anyway so I figured might as well go through the paint cans so there glued down and bolted through the bottom of the can-1/4 inch-suitcase-suitcase-1/4inch and finally thru top of paint can
