These 2 great luggage ideas come from a display from Time-worn Interiors, at Marburger Farms Antique show. See them hung on the wall. One is a luggage bottom used as a display case and the other is a luggage top with the pocket used for display and storage. Both great ideas. Read Theresa's blog here


I took an old luggage pocket, and mounted it on a chippy old board. Then I embellished it with different architectural and hardware items. I even add old jewelry, keys or whatever I can find. Items similar to this are available in My Store This works great to display photo's, cards, mail etc.


Take a look at the beautiful cottage Luggage Display from Katie's Rose Cottage

AJ Explains how this Suit Case Table was made "We adhered two sections of 2x4 to the inside bottom of the suitcase (front to back) Once dry, I drilled my holes for the legs, through the outside of the suitcase into the 2x4's. ( the legs were old used ones of course!) "

Old Luggage as a Planter or seasonal display This pic came from the Junkwarehouse Be sure to visit their site for more great ideas.


I finally got my own luggage, found some great deals.

Total cost for this grouping $28.00, You can't buy an end table for that, and these have some great storage


Quick Idea

Fill a small piece of luggage with spa items for guests. This will make them feel very welcome.

DaciaB (below) uses old suit cases to organize her craft room. she says "The hardest for me was setting up a workable system for the way I work... I used antique suitcases. I have one 'category' in each suitcase, I have pressing equipment, handbag patterns and notions, fabric to make baby stuff, fashion patterns, home dec patterns, and batting. You can see the white rectangles at the back (these are my labels)"
