Suitcase Spotlight

Hello all,
Well Worn has been as usual busy, busy.  I just wanted to take a minute to spotlight a great project by one of my customers.  I met Grant one day in my booth and thought he was adorable.  He was looking for a vintage suitcase to make into a chair or table.  Mr. Well Worn knows how attached I am to vintage luggage, he also knows how I feel about some of the "up" cycling that we see.  So this was a hard one for me.  Don't misunderstand me, I love a good upcycle, but the emphasis on  that statement is the word "good".  I've run across many a well meaning individual that tore apart or painted something beautiful to make something that was well...not.  So, when Grant told me he wanted to take one of my babies (suitcases) and gasp, change it, I was a little concerned.  When he choose the best one in the bunch, I was inwardly freaking out, but trusted that I was sending it off to a good home.
I'll let you be the judge of that, here are the photos that he emailed to me.

Closed, she's a beautiful table.

Open, a charming little chair.

Ah, I'm so relieved that my baby found a good home AND got a make over.

I hope you can forgive the quality of the pictures, that is entirely on me.  Grant sent some beautiful pictures, but I could not get them to post as well as I would like.

Sometimes it's okay to let something go,
