Vintage Suitcase Repurpose

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for a vintage suitcase in decent shape and for a cheap price.  I just can’t resist.  I even have a friend that goes to the thrift store every time it’s open and will call me to let me know there’s a suitcase there.  I’ve been known to run down to the thrift store on a moments notice!

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
  • Bow
