Today’s piece from Keri was so fabulous that it made me wish I had it to use during all my current travels!! Check it out!
Hi, Marisa! Your site has inspired me (I’m still happily going through your archives) and while I have tried a few of your ideas on some back-of-the-closet things I found, this by far was my fave project! I had a super cute round vintage suitcase…
…but it was very boring.
OK, I need something like this in my life! On the prowl for vintage suitcases stat! Just wait to see what she does!!
I bought two colors of spray paint (the kind for plastics) and a can of lacquer spray paint. I used masking tape to protect the labels and large buckle, then gave it two coats of the mint green paint. Next, I used more masking tape and newspapers to create the stripes with the dark brown paint and let it sit overnight.
I used clear lacquer over the entire thing and TA-DA my suitcase is ready for public travel!
Thanks for all you do :o)
I will say that you must be the chic-est traveler hitting the TSA line at the airport!! I’m coveting this piece and can’t wait to make one of my own! Thanks so much for sharing K!!
