Sustainable Style: Repurposed Luggage

Most of you know that Etsy is a treasure trove of creative people making creative things, and today's sustainable style is one of those products where you have that, "Why didn't I think of that?" moment.

♥ Love ♥ Nostalgic ♥ Whimsy finds favor with cast-off household items, turning them into something unique and most certainly whimsical. Her main upcycled idea is taking vintage suitcases and turning them into one-of-a-kind coffee tables, end tables and even pet beds by screwing furniture legs onto them.

I think this is such a great idea because I always see beautiful vintage luggage at thrift stores, but hardly anyone buys them since they're comfortable with the jet-black bag on wheels that fits nicely in the overhead bin (I'm one of them, so I point the finger at myself, too). But turned into tables, their retro design can be appreciated, and their life purpose (storage) still fulfilled; they just won't be logging any frequent flyer miles.

Here are some of my favorites from her shop...




Look at that pup! So friggin' cute...
