I found this old suitcase at a second hand store. It looked to be in good shape from the outside, so I gave it the old “sniff test” on the inside. I was totally amazed that there were no musty smells, or any other smells for that matter, when I opened it up!
Extra Storage From an Old Suitcase.
I used a cleaner to make it look nice. It really didn't need much either! A great brand of suitcase also!
So then I was on the lookout for a suitcase stand and I found this. But, I wasn’t in love with the strapping.
So I added this. I found this at a large material store that was going out of business. I think it’s used for the inside of furniture usually, but I thought it would look great as my straps.
I also added a larger piece of wood on the front that the suitcase rests on because the suitcase didn’t sit quite level. If it’s going to be used as a table, it needs to be level!
You can’t really see it, because I tried to hide it underneath those inside straps, but I simply screwed the suitcase to the base.
And there you have it! This would be great in a guest room don’t you think!
