A few years ago, my husband I went to an estate auction. There were a lot of antique and collectable items. I was immediately drawn to this vintage suitcase.
At the time, I wasn’t exactly sure what I would do with it but it found its way into my home. After cleaning it up a bit, I put it in one of the bedrooms where it stayed until just recently.
A few months ago, I repainted our family room and decided that I wanted a change in one corner. We also needed some additional seating that could be moved from time to time. With that in mind, I started digging through our shed that is jammed packed with yard sale/auction treasures.
I found this chair which has a twin and I got the pair at a yard sale for $5.00.
This mantel was an auction item for $1.00. It had a mirror that unfortunately had a mishap…..it got broken.
With a little sanding, priming, painting and staining our little corner becomes a yard sale/auction redesign style.
This well-traveled suitcase is now a suitable foot-rest in my family room.
Hope you enjoyed.
P.S. That little tray on my new foot-rest has pictures inserted under glass of my grandsons.
