But these old vintage suitcases have definitely been making a comeback--as anything but suitcases.
Here are a few examples:
(I will apologize in advance if the pictures do not show up. I have been having some issues with pictures from other websites, even if I give them credit and link the picture. Anyone know if that's normal? Either way, I link the picture to the source, so if you want to see them and they're not here, you can click on the picture and see it!)
How fun, huh?
Well, I have had a few old suitcases in my possession for a couple years now. I found them for only $2 each--$6 later, they were mine! At the time, we were just moving, (literally, I bought them from the store that was next door to our new apartment the day I was moving in all our stuff), to an apartment that had TONS of charm...but no closets. Actually, that's a theme in our lives. We still have no closets...well, we do have a small linen closet, so I guess we're moving up in the world! But in our last apartment, we did not have a linen closet, but we did have a lot of extra room in our bathroom.
This is the full portion of the bathroom, but there's a bunch of open floor space behind the camera. I was trying to figure out where to put our towels and such when I remembered my suitcases.
And Voila! A Towel Suitcase! They fit right in with the colors of the brick, and though we have since moved, I still love how they looked.
What ideas do you have for old suitcases?
Happy Thanksgiving week! I have been prepping for Christmas posts--so after Thanksgiving get ready to plug in your glue gun and get out your jingle bells!
