Some large items are not very easy to dispose of. Instead of throwing them away and adding garbage to our already polluted environment, it’s best to just recycle. What you consider trash can be turned into treasure.

This is a very simple and easy project with adorable - and useful - results.

We have several pieces of old suitcases sitting in the attic. I came across them again while I was doing my spring cleaning. I’ve been trying to ignore their existence for the longest time because I didn’t know what to do with them. I sought the help of the Internet and it gave me this project.

This do-it-yourself pet bed is made out of an old suitcase. With some spray paint and the addition of coffee table legs and a cushion, voila, our pet cat Mogwai has a new sleeping spot. And let me tell you, she loved it!
