Vintage suitcase table

Have you ever wanted to do something just for the sake of doing it?  I have...OK I know, I have lots of things.  Crafting and re purposing is like that.  You don't just make stuff for yourself, you make stuff because you love it.
This suitcase table is one of those,  "I just have to make that" items.
I started with this vintage suitcase I found at an estate sale.  It was a last minute grab and the guy said "Just take it"  No way!  I have been wanting to do many of the cool things I've seen with these vintage suitcases, but lots of times they are too pricey.
I went through my stash of legs, spindles and brackets.
 I cut some wood to fit on the inside of the suitcase, flipped it over and attached the brackets.  The legs I used were the ones that fit into the brackets I already had.
I found some scrap fabric to cover the wood.
Check that one off my list.  It was a fun project.
