I love this idea from a reader of Your Home magazine (October 2014 issue) who bought a chest of drawers from IKEA and turned them into ‘stacked suitcases’ simply by using tester paint pots (muted colours work well), a few stickers, plus handles and clasps purchased from eBay.
What works? It’s fairly cheap to copy, a unique idea (great talking point for guests!), offers storage and is a one-off piece.
What doesn’t work? If you’re lacking room space or don’t need the extra storage then, as a bulky item, it’s hard to justify the spend.
You could always make it to sell on if you’re up for a challenge.
