diy suitcase record player


No one lugs around portable record players these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add their sweet, vintage look to your listening nook at home. If you want to feel like you’re in a Wes Anderson film, but are on a budget (understandable), make like Rachel from the blog DIY in PDX and Macgyver yourself a “portable” record player. All you’ll need is an op-shop suitcase that fits your turntable, a drill (and the confidence to use it). Once you’ve got that, follow Rachel’s simple instructions and you’ll have yourself a retro record corner in no time.
