I have been seeing suitcases everywhere so putting together a post to highlight some of the awesome creations seemed like a good idea! Hoping that some inspiration might come your way after you check all of these awesome ideas. I applaud all of the creators for thinking outside of the box (or the case)! Have fun and in the end…CREATE!!!
I know I have my eye out for all kinds of these fun pieces except for me…the leather versions are out…but there are still tons that I can choose from if I find them…Junkin Joe has a new quest!
25 Awesome Suitcase Decorating Tips!

There are so many others out there…so many possibilities…I think what I love the most is that they act as storage that no one will ever detect…it is awesome how much you can tuck away and still have at your finger tips…wishing you all a fabulous day and hope you find a little time to create!

Oh my, so many incredible ideas! I only have one vintage case, it’s more like a square projector case, and I loooove it! I so want more, and now you have given me a ton of inspiration. Great round-up, Andrea. Thanks!
I have a pair of vintage Samsonite hard cases..a suitcase and a train case in blue marble..haven’t decided whether to keep them or sell them they are so cool..These are great ideas Andrea..I would love to make a cat bed from one..The picture of the little Doxie in one is adorable..Hugs

Awesome awesome and more awesome. I have a few, but need more!
I just bought another suitcase this morning. I chalk painted and stenciled a small cosmetic case in pink and it turned out just terrific. I get so much enjoyment out of just looking at it. I keep my small containers of acrylics and brushes in that one.
I am soooooo excited to get to the one I bought today. It is larger than the cosmetic case and I want to keep them in the same area so I will paint and stencil the same or similar as the smaller case project.
Suitcases are so handy for storage and I am so grateful to find them reasonably in my area.
Happy Halloween from Paula
