I love the idea of repurposing old things as planters — cowboy boots, tin cans, milk crates. But this is the first time I’ve seen vintage suitcases used as containers for succulents! It’s at once clever and slight shocking.

What do you think about this idea? What are some of the things you’ve used as flower pots?

By the way, there’s a really wonderful book called Planted Junk dedicated to using found objects as planters.

    I like it…but worry about root rot if there’s no drainage!

    This is an adorable idea but I agree with Jenny. I would think the “planter” side of the suitcase would need to be replaced to prevent it from rotting from the moisture…
