I love the look of old luggage – it has so much character, so many stories to tell. But what do you do with it? Many vintage suitcases are too heavy or too musty to use for packing clothes.
So why not turn it into a pet bed?! This idea falls into the category of “I could totally make that …. but I won’t”. There are several different styles of these vintage suitcase pet beds at Love-Nostalgic-Whimsy on Etsy!
The Love-Nostalgic-Whimsy store has several other upcycled vintage suitcase items for sale, including this retro looking side table.

Another side table idea – this time on casters! So easy and so cute [doubles as storage too]. Via sassycrafter on Flikr! Oh and be sure to check out Kim’s blog – The Sassy Crafter – she’s going to be posting a DIY tutorial for this lovely piece!
Just stacking a few vintage suitcases can make a great side table too!
