Being the vintage suitcase addict that I am, I thought this idea was brilliant! To me, this chest of drawers is the perfect example of up-cycling done right - taking old items and breathing new life into them in a way that suits their original form. My husband would argue that it's sacrilege to destroy the authenticity of anything so beautiful, no matter how clever the innovation... he hates "messing with imperfection", preferring the honesty of purity. What do you think? Do we risk the annihilation of time-worn character when we seek to improve on the old?
