Suitcase Stack

Months ago I saw this idea in a Pottery Barn magazine...old suitcases stacked up along a wall.
My quest that summer was to find suitcases at yards sales for less than $5.
It's amazing how many I found in one summer!
The key is to find the suitcases that are rectangular and strong. 
(I made a mistake and bought a few that tapered down....not a good idea for stacking.)
Maybe this summer I can find a few to replace the ones that aren't really my favorite...
but overall, it is a look that I like...especially for the price.
 We had a few extra so we made night stands out of them...
my current night stands are getting a new coat of paint...
these do pretty well 'till my real ones return.
