I found this beautiful suitcase in the thrift shop one Saturday afternoon for just $3.99 and snatched it up! I was so excited.
I love the blue of this suitcase, and the surface of the suitcase is very flat and straight, so I knew that all I needed to do is chalk paint a design on the front and it would be ready to go to the craft sale! Sometimes suitcases are ugly and need to be painted, but this one was a simple repurpose for me.
The inside of the suitcase just needed a simple wash down with a micro fiber cloth and water. Two of the side pockets were lifting, so I glued them down with some E6000 and hot glue. Of course, I added a bow to the handle, for the final touch!
Here’s what I used to make this repurpose:
- Vintage suitcase
- Chalk Couture Chalk paint
- Simply Blessed Chalk Couture Transfer
- Hot Glue
- E6000 Glue
- Chalk Couture Scraper
