Vintage Suitcase Upcycled to Electronics Charging Station

10,168 Views
An old suitcase is a perfect place to hide all of your electronics and their cords while they're charging. I used cheery fabric to update the lining of the suitcase, drilled 2 holes in the back to accomodate 2 extension cords, and filled it up! So simple, and looks so much better to have everything tucked away out of sight. And no more lost chargers!

    This is a truly great idea! And the fabric takes the ick factor of the old suitcase away. Brilliant.

    What a neat idea Brenda. I have a few old suitcases I want to use for something. I might have to do this for our son. He has loads of things that need charging.

    Thanks! I love hiding all of that stuff! Ally - I laughed at the ick factor - you're so right! The old lining reminded me of really old movie theaters - changing the lining made all of the difference!!!
