I LOVE vintage suitcases. I dont have the space for them and the one I purchased off ebay arrived in a less than desirable state. Still, I spray painted it and ripped out the interior and i use it to hold my parcelling supplies. Its brilliant for that. I definitely need to get around to the lining situation though.
Here is some inspiration for you guys if youve purchased any thrifty vintage suitcases recently.
sewing supplies?! Perfect storage space for trims and things! I really am in love with that aqua blue pom pom trim and the vintage hankerchief in the corner.

Filing organiser and noticeboard:
Tutorials and information on Design*Sponge. I think the noticeboard looks slightly ridiculous and a bit too bulky but i like the filing option!
For something less usual, less humdrum Etsy seller VanityCase can turn a vintage suitcase into avanity cabinet. I bet you can even select your own suitcase, As for what i said previously - stick a mirror in it and some lights and il agree to it being on the wall! much like a medicine cabinet.
I do love this one.. Perfect for storing packaging supplies etc. I store mine in a suitcase but thus far havent got around to lining it properly! via Craftzine

I love Design Sprout's version for her teeny tiny pooch.
Again, adding shelving is a marvelous idea!
This is included because its just pretty!
Guest room ideas?! A bedside table or guest towel storage. I love it!
Lots of love Claire xo
