8 Repurposed Suitcase Nightstand Ideas

Mar 23, 2011 by

Repurposed vintage suitcases have been the topic of many blog posts here on Poetic Home, such as my original repurposed luggage filing cabinet and other suitcase upcycling ideas.   In helping Nicole, a Poetic Home reader, redesign her bedroom in an “Anthropologie” style, I began to brainstorm chic, creative, and bohemian nightstand ideas that were also budget friendly.  Naturally, repurposed suitcase nightstands came to mind!

In my former home in San Diego, I simply stacked four vintage suitcases to be a neutral but creative end table in my living room.   I added a piece of glass to the very top suitcase to make it suitable for holding drinks (after the fan found a new home through my Etsy shop).

These are Louis Vuitton suitcases stacked to be a most luxurious repurposed suitcase nightstand, as photographed by Victoria Pearson in House Beautiful.    Wouldn’t these look gorgeous in a dashing gentleman’s quarter?

Fernseed took a director’s chair bottom and topped it with a vintage suitcase to create a repurposed nightstand that would fit well for both him and her.

Angels in the Architecture transformed a simple suitcase from the 1960s with spray paint and the legs of an Ikea laptop stand to create this mod chic repurposed side table.  I love the spunk of this one!


This is the project by SongBird that launched a thousand painted suitcase sidetables.  It’s still every bit as lovely and ingenious!

In a similar vein, A Beach Cottage painted two mismatched vintage luggage pieces to create a chic nightstand.

Love Nostalgic Whimsy created a truly eco-friendly nightstand using reclaimed pallets and a vintage suitcase.

The rainbow delight that is this repurposed suitcase sidetable is the lovely creation of Shrimp Salad Circus, who simply bolted the brightly colored luggage pieces together.

If you have repurposed any suitcase pieces, I would LOVE to hear about it and possibly feature it here on Poetic Home!
