Last summer, Sarahc published a post with five great ways to use vintage suitcases around the home. One that we'd never thought of -- and just discovered -- is a quirky DIY project for the bathroom: Turn it into a medicine cabinet. While the link goes through a how-to list, what we're really missing are the step-by-step and final visuals. We're skeptical, but intrigued. One big missing element: the mirror. Thoughts on this?? To start, you'll need:
  • 1 hard case vintage suitcase (squared is best)
  • Power drill
  • Wood screws
  • Toggle bolts
  • 1X4's
  • ¾ wood molding
  • Hard as nails glue or epoxy glue
  • Paint
