I’ve seen lots of cute luggage racks used in home décor lately; I especially love the ones being used as nightstands!
When I found this one for $1 at Goodwill I had to bring it home. Unfortunately it’s been sitting in the spare room for a few months and I finally got around to finishing it!
It was missing a strap and the colors weren’t what I had in mind so I removed the nylon strapping and gave the yellow base a good coat of gray paint. I had to adjust it several times to get everything covered!
I love the look of burlap upholstery strapping and figured it would work great on this project. At $0.79 a yard, it’s a very inexpensive option!
I started by stapling the strapping on the inside of the rack. This way when it wraps across to the other side the staples will be covered.
Once I had the first side secured I marked where I should cut the strapping. You want it to be long enough that the feet sit securely on the floor, but tight enough that the straps don’t sag when it’s open.
Easy as that! It looks great with a wooden tray and can be used as an end table.
