I am always looking for cool, new upcycle projects that I can try in my home.

Anytime I’m able to transform some old piece of junk in my garage or yard, like a pile of old cinder blocks, into something new and useful, I give it a try. These kinds of DIY projects are great because they save you money and provide you with some of the most creative home furnishings around. So when I saw these brilliant ideas for repurposing vintage suitcases, I knew I’d be giving several of them a try.

I’ve always been wary of using something vintage in my upcycle projects because I don’t want to ruin the integrity of the original item. But in this case, there are extremely easy ways to completely transform these suitcases into new, usable items, while still maintaining their original vintage appeal.
