Repurposed inspiration - Suitcases

Since our company is an eco friendly company that sells eco friendly products, we are very aware of Earth Day on April 22nd. In fact, James and I have to work at a booth at the San Diego Earth Fair this year. I am actually excited (not just for the overtime pay) because we usually go there every year anyway. It's really neat to see all the eco friendly products and ideas they have. I have been spotting some fun projects to do that are easy and help keeps products out of a landfill.
There are so many great ideas for repurposing that I decided to make multiple post.

Today - Vintage Suitcases
James and I find a lot of vintage suitcases are our local swap meet. We actually almost picked up one last time we were there. I think I might have to go ahead and get one or two or three next time we go. 

I would love to make a bed like this for Peanut. He's about the size of those kittens in the photos

okay, so I really LOVE vintage suitcase furniture. They are stylish and great for extra storage.
 Sherri from the SalvageShack made the pieces below. Check out her Etsy store here



A fun laptop stand. You can find this piece here.


And a chic little nightstand made by the same person. This would be great in a guy or gal's bedroom

Or what about this SUPER AWESOME BoomCase
A BoomCase is "The Self Powered Portable Suitcase Stereo system that works with your iPod/iPhone or any device with a headphone plug." as stated by the website.

or how about an easy DIY filing cabinet?
She said she made this in about 5 minutes with an according file and Velcro tape. 

There is also this interesting medicine cabinet made by T.O.M.T
(seriously, check out there site for all awesome things repurposed)


well, that's enough vintage suitcase eye candy for now... Let's see what fun repurposed theme I can come up with tomorrow!
