Floating Suitcase Shelf

Floating Suitcase Shelf

This wooden suitcase was a Goodwill find. I don't believe it is old but it looks vintage. When it came time to remodel the bathroom I wanted to incorporate some of my thrifted junk as part of the decor. We took the hinges off and screwed the suitcase bottom to the wall. The top half of the suitcase can be lifted off for additional storage inside.

Be Well,
