making over the 'case.

a couple of months ago, i foraged this beauty off one of my neighbours front lawn!

it is in desperate need of a lot of tlc!
i spent a little bit of time over the weekend, cleaning the inside and outside, sanding the hinges and thinking about all of the possibilities of what i could do!

the inside lining will need to be replaced i think... time to get the modpodge out!
i'm thinking it would look nice in a vintage printed fabric. might need to go op-shopping for some vintage sheeting!

the outside will need a paint job, as the facade is a little messed up! a lick of mint green paint should do the trick.
oh, and those hinges, they definitely need a bit more work with the steel wool!
as well as a bit of alignment i think.

what do you think? do you have any suggestions for making over a suitcase?

Oh pretty! Mint green will be very pretty - perhaps with a hot pink or apricot interior? Can't wait to see the finished project - what a find!

Wow I would never have thought to redo a suitcase. Can't wait to see what you do to it.
