Best Feet Forward


I wanted to share a quick little, free project that I finished over the weekend.  It was such an easy craft, with leftover supplies I already had around the house.  It started with four wooden knobs that were replaced during this Ikea hack.  I sprayed the knobs with some high gloss blue spray paint, that was leftover from previous projects. 


Toothpicks elevated the knobs enough to be able to spray them on all sides.
Once the knobs were sprayed (2 coats) and dry (about 1 hour),  I used hot glue to affix the knobs to the underside of a small vintage suitcase.


I turned the knobs upside-down, and they became the perfect little feet for the old suitcase.

    1. Well that is an excellent question. Besides displaying it as is, I'm not sure. If you have any fabulous ideas...I'd love to hear them!

  4. That is such a cute idea! I would probably store things like stationary paper and envelopes in there or my journals and pens.
