I like luggage racks

I like using them when we stay in a hotel
 and I like being able to offer them to my children or friends when they are here.
A few Saturday afternoons ago, on the way home from a funeral, we stopped at an estate sale and I found this one.  It is tall and sturdy.  The orange strapping looks better in the picture than it was in person.  It actually felt crunchy. 

I had just enough of this upholstery stuff left over from other projects to do this
I have 100's of upholstery tacks and have been nailing them on things for a while now
the cute little hammer was another find at an tool sale we went to.  
I've used it a lot.  It is just the right size for me.

this was an easy make-over - and it was free, except for the luggage rack, which was $15.00

I measured twice and cut once - that is rare for me -
then I turned the fabric under and nailed three tacks to each strap

to accomplish this

so my people can do this
have you noticed that the size of an overnight bag today is about twice the size of a vintage bag?
the one on the floor will hardly hold all my make-up, jewelry and hair products.

 Now I need to do this one, even though it works just fine like this.

I hope I have company soon!

I consider this furniture, so I am planning to link up to Miss Mustard Seed's furniture party on Friday
