Don’t pass up another vintage suitcase… you can find them pretty much anywhere – garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets and they are always cheap! This is my second Suitcase Makeover and I love how cool and funky it is. The Goodwill in my area used to open the warehouse where they sold everything for .99 cents. I found so many amazing things during those sales, including two suitcases. I worked on the first one a while ago (you can see it here) and finally got around to working on this Vintage Suitcase Makeover. What you need: suitcase, craft paint, spray paint, clear sealer, paint brush, This is my suitcase before… pretty ugly, right? Keep your eyes peeled for one of these when you are thrift store shopping… I wiped the suitcase down and then spray painted it with Rust-Oleum Spring Green. When the spray paint is dry, it’s time to decorate with craft paint. When the paint was dry, I covered with a clear sealer. The inside was in good shape, but needed a paint job. I painted the inside a cool coral and pink around the edge. I thought about painting a quote on the inside, but haven’t yet… maybe sometime soon. What do you think about this vintage suitcase makeover? These suitcases are also great for extra storage at home… you could store seasonal items in it and display the suitcase in your closet or use it to give a gift in! So many fun things you can do with something like this. If you love thrift stores like me, check out some of these other projects.
