I will not pretend that this idea was of my own invention. This past summer I saw this somewhere (Pintrest? Etsy? A blog?). I have searching for suitcases ever since. Here is the after:
The inside is in immaculate condition, but the pocket doesn't lay very nice when the lid is up. I actually glued it up a bit after I took this picture. These pockets and once on the sides would be great storage for leashes, balls, bones and more when you take your dog on a trip. Here is what it looks like closed.
A closer look at the feet. I picked these up at a thrift store this summer and sprayed them with my current favorite Stainless Steel. They are easy to unscrew. In fact, you could take them off and throw them in the suitcase for a traveling dog bed.
Delia and I tried to get the dogs to pose, but my dog babies aren't fans of any bed but mine. While I designed it as a dog bed it could be used as a foot stool, a little table or simple storage. I LOVE it and wish I could keep it, but alas I think it is something I will be selling soon.
