I never knew before that there were so many cool uses for luggage racks.  Like most people I was only familiar with them as the thing that most hotel rooms have in the closet to help you unpack and pack up again.  My mom was the first person I knew to use one in her guest bedroom, which I have always appreciated because not only does it come in handy, but it makes me feel like I’m staying at a nice resort.  I decided to employ a luggage stand in my own guest bedroom and decided on a luggage rack with curved legs and toile straps by Gate House because it goes well with my shabby chic décor.
In my search I came across a number of creative repurposed luggage racks.  Apparently, you can turn one like this foldaway suitcase stand – hardwood walnut finish into a side table by adding a piece of wood, or a serving tray, or better yet an old hard sided suitcase.  This has a really cute effect in casual, eclectic and shabby chic spaces.  The four straps will help keep the surface you add stable, and you can even add a couple of screws to help.  To create a cool display for photos, linens, or your child’s stuffed animals, place an old hard sided suitcase on top but open it up to create a display area.  These are very easy DIY project with luggage racks!
If you want to use a folding suitcase rack in the traditional way, the bamboo luggage rack with two straps is a great way to go.  It has a decorative look that I would pair with other “natural” home furnishings and tropical inspired décor.  Plus, it’s an eco friendly home storage piece which it seems like everyone wants to get in on these days.
