Materials: LACK side table, vintage suitcase, plywood, drill, screws, red paint, Sharpie
Description: My NYC apartment desperately lacked storage space, so I set out to make a fun side table that would double as board game storage.
I created a dummy table that would fit under the vintage flea market suitcase, screwing the legs from the LACK side table into a thick piece of plywood that I had painted to match. I then attached the table to the bottom of the suitcase with strong screws and bolts, and voila!
Using a Sharpie,I drew a dandelion onto the leftover LACK table top and hung it as wall art.
