I have redone several suitcases and I thought it would be more polite to post about them all rather than flood Donna’s themed link up with several posts about vintage suitcases.
I will link each photo back to the original post if you want to read more about them.
My first suitcase redo was back in May 2010. I changed an ugly blue suitcase to green with a stenciled harlequin diamond patter on the top and a coat of glaze.
The ugly blue suitcase had a big brother which was my next victim. I did some subway art on the top of that one and used my husband’s genealogy for the words.
You can’t see the hard work I put into all those letters because I stack the suitcases next to a chair.
Then my friend wanted one of her suitcases painted and needed 2 more redone for a charity auction and enlisted my help.
Her suitcase turned out like this.
And the other got a bird stencil put on it.
Suitcase redos are the easiest and most fun projects ever.
