I bought this Vintage Samsonite suitcase
from a thrift store a few weeks ago.
It's been sitting in my garage.. waiting
for me to bring it back to life..
You'd think in a few weeks time,
I could've taken at least
1 before photo!! GRRR @ me!
I only have a couple
of before pics of the inside
that I took today. Sorry!
The outside was a really nice orange color..
to match the yummy plaid on the inside.. EEK!
I cleaned, sanded, primed and painted the entire
outside of the suitcase white..
Then, brought it in from the garage today
& began to line the inside walls
with linen strips.
I had bought this Pottery Barn crib bumper pad
from a thrift store awhile ago. At the time, I had
no idea what I'd use it for, but, I LOVED the
rosey fabric.. so, I bought it.
I used the bumper pad to line
the inside of the suitcase.
I cut it into 4 even strips,
sewed the edges,
and hotglued it inside.
I also cut off the ties,
and retied them into bows,
and hotglued those all around...
Even without the before photo
I'm hoping you agree..
she's MUCH better now!!
