Hello friends... today I'm sharing an old suitcase makeover, and I'm linking to Wen's Simply Neutrals Party #19.
This old suitcase was brown, like my old school 'port', and the corner was wrecked so it was being tossed out. Luckily I happened to be passing and saved it!
I painted the outside with a pale pink low sheen wall paint I had left over, and lined it with an old curtain I'd been saving because it was too pretty to throw away.
The curtain was cut to size, the edges folded under, and I used a hot glue gun to stick it in.
This rose print is so pretty....
Now to fill it with laces... instant decor!
I found a piece of olive green velvet ribbon just the right match to finish my paper doll box from the previous post... I also added some daisies, small pearls and a flower trim to hide the ribbon join.
You might like to pop over to Wen's blog AppleApricot to see all the gorgeous neutral beauty on display through her linky party. Wen's lace card is divine, you should take a peek! Thanks Wen for hosting Simply Neutrals again.
Hope you can find some creative regeneration time this week.
