I could start this post out with I LOVE OLD SUITCASES, but I seem to start every post out like that so we will just skip that part tonight. But you can assume the statement is true! 🙂
Here and there I run across some awesome suitcases that I would never want to paint over, however there are a few that defiantly need a face lift. That is where I come in!
This suitcase is pretty blah right…well we can fix that!!!
How about with a little Duck Egg Blue!! Oh the power of paint!!!
This little table was needing a pop of color and I believe this suitcase did just that!
I can’t leave out the silver 1847 tea set from Lost and Found in Bountiful! I have always wanted one and when I saw it I do believe my mouth started watering! Isn’t she a beauty.
So if you want your own suitcase to paint here is a few tips…
Hard suitcases are best
I used Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint so I didn’t have to prime
Consider using 2 colors to accent some of the suitcases natural lines
PS I have had A LOT of questions lately, which I enjoy, it makes me feel important! However most of them come from NO REPLY BLOGGERS!! If you don’t know if you are a no reply blogger or not please leave your email address so I can answer your question. If I haven’t answered your previous question it is probably because I can’t 🙁
