During a recent spring clean, Jools’ Dad gave us a beautiful vintage suitcase that he’d been given as a 21st birthday present by his parents in April 1962. It accompanied him on his travels to Loughborough during his practical engineering training.
Being so stylish and with the family history behind it we knew we wanted to have it on display. Jools has recently fallen in love with Dansette legs, whilst trying to find some to fit his Wurlitzer Electric Piano, and had a spare set lying around. Over Easter, we thought we’d have a go at combining these two retro beauties to make a table that doubles up as storage.
We are so pleased with the results! Keep a look out for more Dansette inspired projects on Missalayneous in future.
Materials: vintage suitcase, Dansette legs, screws and sockets plus 4 wood blocks.
Much love and thanks to Mr Jools Scott for his DIY inspiration and talents – we make a good team 🙂
We hope you like this storage idea as much as we do. It’s easily transferable to other items such as retro trays… who knows, the possibilities are endless!
What do you think? We would love to hear your ideas.
