For ten years, three vintage suitcases sat lonely next to my leather couch. I knew I wanted to do something with them - just never quite sure what. And then it came to me when I saw the cover of a Flea Market magazine. Turn them into shelves. What then? Why of course - make a Family Shrine Wall. With the help of my brother, we cut them in half, reinforced them and bolted them to the wall. Three suitcases turned into six shelves. With all the collecting I do, it was easy to fill up.
The metal door labeled 733 was our mailbox growing up. When the post office was remodeled, we got the old door.
