Vintage Suitcase Love

On Thursday I picked up two vintage suitcases at my new favourite op shop.

I was looking for a big brown one to go with the two I bought last year.

I'll show you my stack once I've gotten rid of those drawers,
which used to be in our bedroom 
and now need a new home.

And couldn't I resist this little blue suitcase. 

Although I didn't really need it ...

Which now holds all our DVD series.


Turns out I did need it, after all!

Have you seen the tutorial about covering the outsides of these old suitcases with vintage fabric? They look even more gorgeous- I think you use my old friend Mod Podge. I have been looking but the only ones I have seen at the oppie cost a fortune as they are quite trendy now. melx

Ooh thanks Mel! Am having ideas now about covering some of my suitcases on the inside ... couldn't bring myself to cover the outsides and I want a quiet calm look in the living room (craft room is a different story!)

Ooh, no never too many suitcases, although I may have reached saturation.
Still love them. Love what you did with the DVD's.
