I have a lot of earrings, and I wanted to make an efficient organizer for them. So... I decided to repurpose a small vintage suitcase (it probably was a makeup train case) for it.

Step 1: The trunk, as found

It was a humble litlle trunk.... the "Little Trunk that Could", to borrow a phrase.
<p>This is absolutely lovely. I have a teeny box that I fish through every time I want to wear some earrings, and it's time that I get better organized with my storage. I'll have to hit some thrift shops and look around, but a vintage suitcase is such a cute, creative idea. Thanks so much for the inspiration! www.kandlstorage.com</p>
Such a lovely storage idea. Thanks x
So cute! I love it.
Hmmm, I like this idea... it would be good for a festival earring display as well, and if you only use one side and leave the mirror...
Cute &amp; clever. Think jessy has a great idea on wall mounting it too!
Very cute idea! I could see small suitcases being hung on the wall like this. :)
