Do you love the look of vintage suitcases? I do too. I had seen them used as end tables and such, but I didn’t have room for end tables. I ended up using them as shelves for our art exhibit we had in 2008. I came across Michelle’s blog post from that year and decided I’m going to hang these babies up in my bedroom!
To do this, you’ll need some L brackets mounted to the wall to anchor the suitcase so they’ll be sturdy. You can also mount a wood shelf, like we did here. Either way, they really add a whimsical touch!
Next time you come across one of these suitcases at a yard sale or flea market, give this idea a try!
Another idea – Hang them so they open like a door and make the inside a shadowbox!
