From suitcase to storage / table

Old suitcases not only make great storage, but when you stack them, you have an instant table.  I painted these (they were UGLY), lined them with pretty fabric, and put a tray on top for drinks, etc.  One has seasonal clothing inside, and the other has videos.

Pattern or design used: My own design
