Ever wonder what to do with those beautiful vintage suitcase finds? I have collected three beautiful blue pieces so far and I've been keeping my eye out for some serious repurposing inspiration. I came across these brilliant ideas and wanted to share them for this week's Inspiration for your Nest! Enjoy. :)

  9. I have three suitcases that I've stacked into a table-like structure-- but I love the idea of using just one + a stool of some sort!
