I adore vintage suitcases! They have such character and charm and often tell a story, I have a couple of military trunks with the soldiers name and rank on them and they make fabulous coffee tables with the added bonus of a huge storage space within.

Ebay is a great way to source them as well as vintage shops and markets; Blighty always has a wide selection to choose from.
Suitcases piled by size make great tables, I have a few of these dotted around my home, unfortunately my house is far too untidy today to take pictures but I can show you this lovely little stack from my daughter’s home, she uses these as a bedside table; don’t they look fab!

One of the easiest and most effective projects is to cover suitcases in your favourite papers or fabrics. These look amazing!
My little Chihuahua, Betty would love this bed although George my scottie would struggle to fit into it!
Suitcase seating works so well, this is one of my favourite suitcase upcycles…

Boom box suitcases are really popular at the mo, I love the idea that I can play my ipod through one of these babies!
One of the best things about suitcases at the moment is the fact that after the huge demand for these beauties for weddings drove the prices up to silly money; prices really are on their way back down!
