Large Vintage Suitcase

i am really loving these old vintage suitcases lately, and I see that alot of you do too!
i found the smaller one that you may have seen in this post here at the markets.
the larger one was found on eBay.
they have only had a couple of coats of paint, as i don't want to hide all the imperfections
that come with these vintage lovelies.
they are great for storage anywhere.
and this one holds heaps! it's HUGE!
i decided that they can live here for now.
this is how the top of the cupboard once looked.
the mirror was is also a recent market find. love it's
pretty art deco shape. the bird cage mirror has gone to live in Emily's room.
