My friend Julie is very creative. She teaches art and jewelry classes. She is always packing up supplies and bringing it to the various places she teaches. For her Birthday I decorated an old suitcase for her to carry her supplies.
Of course as I always forget to do, I forgot to take the before picture... but it looked something like this...(found this one on Pinterest)
And yes it did freak me out a bit to paint over it .. it is vintage! But I think I made it really cute...so here is what I did..
I took the suitcase out side and spray painted it with a primer spray paint from Home Depot. Once it dried, I painted it with an eggshell paint I got at Home Depot. I used the small samples they can make the color you like for about $3. I used a Tiffany Blue kind of color.. I can't remember the actual name but the Tiffany color was what I was going for.
Once it was dry...I used some Wallies wall paper flowers and Mod Podge to decorate the suitcase.
