New Wives Club #19: put those vintage suitcases to use by making a quirky bedside table from them


Vintage suitcase bedside table

I think there must be lots of couples who end up with old ‘vintage’ suitcases lying around following their wedding – they have become so popular in recent times whether simply used as props to decorate your venue, or to collect cards and gifts in.  But what do you do with them after ‘the big day’?

Well this is one fun and useful way of using them – pile a couple on top of each other (in ever receding size order if you are lucky enough to have them) and hey presto! you have a neat bedside table.

You don’t need to top it with a mirror, but it does look rather smart, plus you could always fill the suitcases up with all those other bits you have lying around after your wedding so they don’t clutter up some other part of your home.

Have a wonderful Sunday and if you’re looking for more ideas or inspiration like this for your home, do have a read of some of my other New Wives Club posts.
