My Friends Have Baggage
Since moving into the Nest, we have had a good amount of guests/visitors. Of course, Taylor’s kids come about once a month, but we’ve also had other friends and family popping in frequently. Which we love! One of my favorite travel finds is a luggage rack. If I stay at a hotel that doesn’t have one in the room, I always call and they’ll bring one up to me. It’s just more civilized than throwing the suitcase on the desk or on the floor. And I’m all about civilized.
I snagged this from my grandparents’ house a few years ago. It’s pretty standard issue. In fact I think I’ve seen the exact same one out and about somewhere. Here is a link to a similar one. P.S. and by the way, I would likely not spend $65 on this if I didn’t already own it…
Anyhoozit, I’ve never been exactly wild about the ribbon straps and they were fraying, so while Taylor and I were at the insane Gail K Fabrics this weekend on a wedding-related outing, I peeked at the trim they have there and found this Greek Key goodness.
So, I bought 2 yards of it for about 12 bucks. Sunday morning, I pulled out my handy dandy flat head screwdriver and staple gun and got to work removing the old ribbon and attaching the new stuff.
It took all of 15 minutes to get it done.
And here’s the new and improved luggage stand:
Even though the room is on the warm side, I really love the black and white of the ribbon against the black stand. And we have a few black accents in the room, such as the framed artwork above the stand and on the etagere and a black and white enamel barber’s chest for a nightstand. (And I guess the crummy television set.)
It’s the little things like this that keep me sane while doing wedding stuff.
You and your baggage are welcome anytime.
