Suitcase Makeover

I have two more suitcase makeovers to show you.  One is for the fundraiser auction and the other suitcase was my friend’s grandmother’s. 

First I will show you our girly suitcase makeover for the auction. My friend painted the suitcase in pink.  It use to be dark blue.


I used my Cricut and created some stencils and then bedazzled the crown.


I thought it would be perfect for a little girl’s dress up clothes. 


The other makeover is for my friend to keep.

Here’s the before.


She was very close to her grandmother and she loves vintage and antiques.  She spray painted the suitcase in a gray primer and I stenciled on the word “Antique”.


It looked too new so I added a bit of black glaze and more on the trim.

Look what a cool black and white photo it makes.

I just love it. 

Here is both of the makeovers together.

I love a good suitcase redo.  Don’t you?  What would you do to an old suitcase?
