I found this sweet vintage luggage rack at the thrift store for $5. I don’t know about you, but I see these all of the time and I think they have so much potential, it was time for an easy luggage rack makeover!
The fabric was very 1985, but it had a ton of potential. Luggage racks are one of those things that you don’t know you need them until you need them. The fact that they can fold away when not in use is great for space saving between guests. It would go well in this boho room makeover.
This one caught my eye because it had these great, little curves and was very sturdy.
I decided to do a little update with some upholstery webbing. I love upholstery webbing. I did this project with it a while ago.
To makeover the luggage rack, It was as easy as opening it up and flipping it upside down. I measured and cut my strap lengths.
And rolled the edge over and stapled it over the existing fabric, which I cut off at the edge after the other straps were in place to give the luggage rack a makeover. The nice thing about upholstery webbing is that it’s made for furniture, so you know it’s going to hold the weight of a suitcase.
It was an instant update! I distressed the edges to give it a bit of a worn look. With use the fold away luggage rack will get dinged a bit anyway, so this will make the “aging” process much easier.
I has found this cute, little french-inspired postcard cushion and it fits perfectly on top! Even though this wouldn’t hold anyone for a seat, it looks cute when it’s in use.
It’s a nice update for a guest room! I took it over to my space at Affordable Antiques this week, hopefully it will find a new home there!
