I think suitcases are such a fun way to spice up the look of any room. I look at these pictures and wonder what kinds of adventures these pieces of luggage may have been on, and I love the idea of having those adventures living right in the room with me!
Rather than display my suitcase like any pictures above, I opted to turn mine into something Chris and I needed - a storage ottoman.
Building the ottoman was super easy!
We bought four feet at Home Depot, stained the feet a nice red mahogany, drilled four holes in the bottom of the suitcase and viola! Storage Ottoman!
My ottoman now holds games that were just sitting on the floor and serves as a magazine shelf!
