At iCandy Handmade, Autie shares the backstory on these two cupboard doors. “My father-in-law owns a restoration company and oftentimes has cupboard door styles or carpet squares that have been discontinued and he no longer uses.” He gave them to Autie and the doors sat in her garage for a while before she figured out what to do with them.

Over at Pretty Providence, Sarah has a collection of vintage suitcases down in her cellar, which she scored at yard sales over time. One day she got brave enough to take on an old ugly suitcase and make it something beautiful.
