Faux Bamboo Luggage Racks

I have a pair of faux bamboo luggage racks.  You know me though.  
Why would I ever put luggage on them?

I thought they'd make excellent bedside tables or even a mini collapsable bar.

I started with a pair of these fabulous luggage stands.

I carried the measurements for the tops around with me for a while until I found the perfect trays for them.  These woven trays have iron handles and the sides are also double reinforced metal.

TRAY FOR LUGGAGE RACK

Here you have a perfect mini bar, or a side table, or a bedside table.
The base could also accommodate another tray or a basket.
