Vintage Suitcase Upcycled to Electronics Charging Station

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!
All filled up and ready to charge!
This is where it sits our house.
We added the piece of wood to cover up the lining that got tattered from hole-drilling! (Before I changed the lining.)
