To build our seat, we start by measuring the width and depth of the suitcase. then closer to a DIY store and ask to cut two sheets of pine wood 18 mm thick (one is for the seat and the other for the back) and with the same measures you have taken of the case. Once you have them, draw the outline of the case in the tables.

In the same store, you can buy two pieces of foam 5 cm thick and the size of the suitcase and a nice fabric to upholster. Glue the foam pieces on the board with spray adhesive, foam placed over the fabric and attach to the rear of the boards with nails. Make sure that the fabric is taut, preventing wrinkles.
Step 4: Place the buttons
Find four nice buttons to make the quilted effect in the chair. To put in trim, put two screws in the middle of the wood at 20 cm distance, carefully through the fabric and the foam. If you see sticking out of the bolt, you can cut it with the Dremel 8100 multitool and wheel to metal.
