I *LOVE* these!  Shocked 

Definitely eyeing up my apartment walls (and planning a trip to a thrift store).  Thanks for sharing!

What do you use to attach the suitcases together?

Well, the bf (who loves any chance to use his power tools) used drilled some holes and used screws/bolts to attach them together. It's just a matter of finding the right length screw so it doesn't stick out too much. And luckily, these suitcases had intact satin pockets on the inside that did a nice job of camoflauging (sp?) the bolts.

we also screwed the top corners of the bottom suitcase to the wall for extra support...

OMG... I love these!  I hit the This Rocks button before my brain figured out what my fingers were doing.

I'm going to have to try my hand at these once I buy my new place next spring.  I often drool over old suitcases, and now I've finally got an excuse to buy two or three (or ten Smiley ... ) and put them to good use...

That is just...mightly cool!  I have a ton of old suitcases, this gives me a great idea of something to do with them - uh, other than just stack them in piles. :-)
