Funky Coffee Table

Thought I'd share my funky coffee table creation with you this morning! It's pretty crazy, so not sure if you'll like it or not...? At a sale in Minnesota last year, my eye caught sight of this dolly, shown below, far left.
So, I brought it home, thoroughly washed it and applied a poly stain to the entire cart.


It needed some height, and the only thing I could come up with were these vintage suitcases. I positioned them various ways, but they looked best this way:

The suitcases work great for storing my magazines and decorating books. A little too funky? Whatcha think?

  8. Absolutely LOVE It!!! Now I wish I hadn't passed up the little dolly/hand cart I came across a couple of months ago. I thought it was too small to be of any use! This is why I love bloggers! They have the best ideas!
