DIY: Suitcase Cabinet and Towel Holder by Ashley Campbell – upcycleDZINE
Finally another DIY project I found on a creative website. This project uses an object that lots of people like. And I’m one of them. Really, who doesn’t like the character and charm of a vintage suitcase. So whenever I see upcycle design or a DIY upcycle project that uses a vintage suitcase, I’m intrigued.
Here on upcycleDZINE I’ve shown a few amazing designs like a chair, boombox, stool and even stunning shelves.

Suitcase cabinet both pleasing and practical

And now another upcycled vintage suitcase and this time in the form of a small cabinet. The DIY project is by Ashley Campbell, a very creative person and great photographer who founded the blog Under the Sycamore. She came up with this idea to create a Suitcase Cabinet and Towel Holder for her guests.

Ashley Campbell:

“When I visit a friend’s home, it’s the little details filling the house that stand out and make me feel welcome. In my own home, I want to find ways to make my guests feel special. Baking cookies or having a favorite drink on hand is easy. What is not so easy is the tiny size of our guest bathroom. The small space makes it difficult to have extra little items on hand for guests.”

Ashley wanted to add a bit of storage that was both pleasing to look at and practical. She took a small suitcase found in a thrift-shop and mounted it to the wall to serve as a towel holder and small cabinet.
