Today I am hanging out with a few of my blogging besties showing ways to make something old new again.
My design style tends to lean a little more modern- I love a great black accent and one of my favorite ways to soften a modern room is too add something vintage in an unexpected way.
Let’s see how we can use vintage suitcases in decor.
Here I have stacked three vintage suitcases to make an nightstand in our guest room.
With the three suitcases stacked it’s a great height for a nightstand and since it’s a guest room we didn’t need to worry about storage space.
Another great use for vintage suitcases is as end tables.
I have a couple of black ones stacked on the side of my sofa that acts as an end table in the living room.
They help balance out my camel colored sofa and offer the perfect display area for books and photographs.
Ooh, and flowers.
I love giving these pieces new life.
A bonus is they are actually quite large and the surface allows for lots of display space.
Some of my favorite places to find old suitcases:
When I find a vintage piece that I love they are not always ready for use.
I always take the following steps to make sure they are ready for display.
Those are my tips for making old suitcases new again!
I have a new project on my list that I will post about soon, I found a vintage salesman suitcase that I am going to add legs to and I am so excited to see how it turns out.
Now lets see what my blogging beasties are making new again!
Until next time,
