Sometimes you shouldn’t throw out your old things because you can make fascinating crafts from them. If you have found an old suitcase in your attic which was your grandmother’s, don’t hesitate to grab it and use it in your new project! Let’s check out how to turn old suitcases into something awesome!
We even can’t count it, but there are so many things you can do with vintage suitcases. A “Redditor” found one and he decided to save the luggage from the inevitable junkyard pile. When you see what he made you’ll be searching your city for old suitcases to make over, too.
It might be unbelievable, but Aichtal fished this 50+-year-old suitcase out of the neighbor’s trash.
As you can see, the inside was covered with grimy paper and smelled. Fortunately, this creative “Redditor” didn’t give up his project at the beginning.
First of all, the crafter used a steel sponge and water to scrub it off.
Under all that dirty paper was a beautiful wooden shell.
After that, he added straps to control how far the suitcase would open and decided to paint the interior. This red inside looks pretty cool!
Then he decided to paint the exterior white. If you would like to make this project on your own, be creative! Use your favourite colours, it’s just a good example below.
Finally, he added LED lights and a wooden base to support the bottles, et voilà! What an awesome minibar!
Do you also need one of these in your living room? Now you see that it’s easy to create one!
What a cool way to take something old, keep its character, and give it a new use. Will you try this craft out? Of course!
