Since that reality is probably never coming back, I'll settle for having the suitcases in my living room. I'e seen so many images of stacked suitcases used as a side table and I was determined to create the same look for my apartment. While my mom and I were at the flea market I mentioned on Friday, I picked up two great vintage suitcases. I would still like to find one more to complete the look, perhaps a cream or tan option would be great. But these two were great deals and I didn't want to buy a third just to buy something. I want it to look right.
Here is the first one. I love the stripes.
Here is the second. I love the blue.
And of course a photo bomb shot.
The suitcases still need some tlc, to get that sticker off the bottom. I don't have any flowers at the moment, but I picture the side table eventually looking something like this picture.
Here is a close up of my quick styling. I need some flowers for the vase obviously. But I think the tray is nice for a drink or snack and the owl adds a nice little touch of fall. Something about owls screams fall...or should I saw "hoos"? Sorry, terrible pun. Enjoy!
