Vintage Suitcase Turned Into A Wall Shelf

If you’re tired of seeing the same old floating shelves featured on home dec sites and would like to have something unique and practical in your own home, take a  look at what Brooke at Anastasiavintage has done with a vintage suitcase.


The first step in the process is to cut the suitcase in half across the back. This results in a shallow front of the suitcase and an open back. A board is then nailed to the open back, creating a stable section to hang the suitcase,  and the two sides are nailed together so the suitcase no longer can open. Then it’s a simple matter of adding hangers onto the back of the suitcase and attaching it to the wall. This easy to create shelf is a one-of-a-kind treasure that will reflect your own individual personality.


Adding the finishing touch to this project is the accessorizing of the shelf with unique objects.
