Trash to Treasure --- Suitcases

Today's trash to treasure is about vintage suitcases.   It is interesting to me to see all these ways to repurpose an old suitcase.

You can find a tutorial here on how to make this pet bed from a suitcase.   It includes directions on securing the lid.  You wouldn't want it falling on your pet!
Kirsten's Suitcase Pet Bed

Add legs to a suitcase to make a side table.


Here is a tutorial showing how to do this on Good Housekeeping.


Here is a beautiful cottagy side table  with the suitcase sitting on a table made by Songbird


Here are some pictures of other uses to give you some inspiration.

Paint them.
