vintage luggage R E I N V E N T E D



V I N T A G E   L U G G A G E

A harbinger of nostalgic memories of times gone by from family driving vacations cross country to a leisurely airplane flight less frought with stress than todays. Although hard side luggage is making a comeback, the items from years gone by can be put to use within the home with a bit of creativity.Above, Maureen Bower posts a rustic selection of luggage stashed on a shelf to store all the spill-overs most stylishly.



For a most creative venture, Recreate turned an old suitcase into an extra seat. Add 4 legs. Detach the back and re-attach it at a lower level. Cushions & V O I L A. Charm.




Emily A. Clark, in her blog feature- STYLISH STORAGE, features this example of storage turned home decor. Remember - form follows function. As a support for a table topped stuffed with items barely needed.
A perfect solution.



Tackle the storage of items that need their own place. Knitting. Craft Projects. Thrift Core has amazing ideas for stashing all the goods away. Check out their blog for more options.



We all know how the bathroom goodies can quickly scatter themselves all over the bathroom countertop.
To keep all those items organized - take a cue from ETSY seller, VanityCase, with a creative solution to turn a suitcase into a medicine cabinet.  Give it a go yourself by purchasing your own vintage luggage piece from a garage sale, Salvations Army, or buy one of many listed on ETSY.

Note: 
Pinterest is by invitation only. It is a new L O V E of mine to keep track of everything I find that I like on the internet by category, If you would like an invite, send me a note.

As always, enjoy.   Lisa
