Perhaps there are a few vintage suitcases in your basement that are just collection dust. If the answer is yes, then this quirky DIY will help transform the travel keepsakes into convenient shelving solutions. Done in a few simple steps, the shelving adds an eclectic touch to a space that is certain to enchant anyone who encounters them.

First, the cases need to be cut down to size before being mounted onto panels that will allow them to be hung on the wall. Using a series of the vintage suitcases to create a mosaic of colorful shelves will not only solve storage woes, but look like works of art. If you don't have any cases on-hand, head to a second-hand store to snatch up a couple favorites. Stats for Vintage Suitcase Shelving Trending: Older & Mild
