Suitcase Shelves

Our little house is s.l.o.w.l.y starting to come together. All of my consignment stalking shopping paid off big time a few weeks ago. We purchased a brand new (with tags) white leather Natuzzi section, chair and ottoman at a fraction of the retail cost. It was a showroom sample and after checking it out, we quickly snagged it. I LOVE this consignment shop, it's filled with brand new items. A few days ago I purchased a big, steel blue, rug and we're currently ISO a living room table. I'll post pictures of the living room...if I can remember.

My next project is to tackle the half bathroom downstairs. Currently, all that's in it is the sink, toilet and a mirror that I'm not so thrilled with but I'm going to have to make work. I've poured over Craigslist and FINALLY found a vintage suitcase in my price range ($20 big ones) that will work for a shelf. 

My $20 find
Once the suitcase is cut in half and secured shut, this is what the finished project will (hopefully) look like...

They'll hang over the toilet and I have absolutely no idea what to put on them. I can assure you that a nasty blue vase and red roses will not be part of the decor. 

Anyways, say a little prayer for me around 2:00pm as I meet with the person to pick up the case. If you don't see or hear from me, assume it was the Craigslist killer.
