6 Clever Ways to Repurpose Suitcases
I love the look of vintage suitcases. There are so many beautiful styles and colors. Made of many different materials, vintage suitcases are perfect for repurposing and adding some character and style to your home decor.
Vintage suitcases can be purchased at any thrift shop, flea market, or antique store. Don’t forget to check the basement or attic of your parents or grandparents house!
