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!
It was a great idea; simply by using tester paint pots (muted colours work well), a few stickers, plus handles and clasps purchased from eBay, she was able to turn a plain chest of drawers into something quite unique.
Taking a closer look at the project…
It's fairly cheap to copy, a unique idea (great talking point for guests!), offers storage and is a one-off piece!
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 for a chest of drawers.
Make it yourself
Use different colours for the different drawers of the suitcase – small tester pots will ensure that you don't spend too much. Also, to add to the project's authenticity you could buy stickers to decorate the project or, if you've got a steady hand, paint them on yourself.
You could always make it to sell on if you're up for a challenge!
