Picnics are fun. For our family, we have picnic sessions at least twice a month especially during summers. We love seeing the boys throwing Frisbees and just having fun. However, there’s one bit that we don’t really like – lugging around baskets of food and a table.

All it takes is an old suitcase and four table legs.

I’ve been complaining about it for a long time. My ever-patient husband must have finally had enough that he quietly went to work. He made a picnic basket that converts into a picnic table. I was so happy!

He saw a DIY picnic table project that made use of a suitcase. It was great because we had several hard shell suitcases that we weren’t using. He just added some table legs and leg braces and it was done in less than a day. The result was amazing. Picnics are now more convenient!

Materials:

  • Hard shell suitcase
  • 4 x leg braces
  • 4 x table legs
  • Screws
  • Spray paint
  • Hinges

Tools:

  • Power drill
  • Pencil
