Hey all! Welcome to Trashtastic Tuesday! This is a little series around here where I show you something that I thrifted, sometimes I make it over, sometimes I don’t. Or it may be something that I have owned and I am tired of, or no longer like, so I make it over. But nevertheless, it is usually something that I paid very little money for. Today, I am bringing you a post that I wrote back in July of 2013, about Vintage suitcases. I wanted to reveal a vintage vanity case that I have been working on today for Trashtastic Tuesday, but I didn’t get it finished in time. So instead I hope you enjoy this past post. and at the end of the post, I have some in progress pictures to share with you of my vanity case so far.
I was so busy in the past few weeks trying to get my brown paper floors done that I have not had the chance to work on any new projects for Trashtastic Tuesday, so this week I thought it would be fun to show you some vintage suitcases. Every time I see a cute one, I swoon! I have never seen one that I could afford, but if I ever do, it will be mine! I have a great selection of them to show you today! Here are 15 ways to use a vintage suitcase. Enjoy!
This one was painted with stripes. Love the colors and the way it was used on the shelves.
I love all of these vintage suitcases, and I hope you do too! Which is your favorite. Have you ever found a great vintage suitcase that you could not pass up? I am always on the look out for one, but have not been lucky enough to come across one that was affordable yet. But there is always hope, right?And here is the suitcase I have been working on for the past couple of days. I have been wanting to try out chalk paint for quite some time now, and I thought this little project would be my perfect guinea pig. I bought this suitcase over the summer at a yard sale for $1.
I almost forgot to take a before picture for you, so I snapped a couple after I had just gotten started.
