Vintage Suitcases

After church, my mother and I went and did a little shopping today.  On our way back to her house, there were a couple of garage sales set-up.  One had a “Town & Country Radio Flyer” Wagon for only $10…love those red wagons!  My grandmother has been wanting one to use when she is gardening, so we stopped and picked it up.  She was thrilled when I dropped it off a few minutes later.

I have been crushing on vintage suitcase projects for awhile now. I pinned a few on Pinterest and started keeping an eye out for luggage whenever I visited an antique shop. I haven’t shopped hard for them, but I have really only seen a few of the ones I like and they were quite pricey…what a disappointment. So, the suitcase project got put on the ever-growing list of “future-maybe someday projects”….until TODAY!!
I stopped at the other garage sale and found these beauties:IMG_0756[1]
Aren’t they cool?  A little TLC needed, but they are great and I love them.  And, now I get to decide what to do with them. 

There are so many cool ideas out there.  As a matter of fact, there are so many neat projects online that I moved my pins to a new Pinterest board so that the ideas have their own space (see my Vintage Suitcase Ideas board). These two are from Apartment Therapy:
I really need another side table in the living room, so that is the plan….I just gotta figure out how I want it to look.   What table ideas do you like best?

Isn’t it exciting when you get a new project?
