Yard Sale Makeover


I have shown this before but I'm linking it up to the CSI site for the new yard sale challenge so decided to write a new post for it.

I got this yellow old Samsonite suitcase at a yard sale at the beginning of the yard sale season for $1.00. So cheap! I also got one of the blue ones for 50¢ which is what I painted for this pink suitcase but forgot to get a before picture so I am posting the yellow suitcase for comparison...same thing just different starting color!

The inside isn't lining isn't the best but that's something I can fix later. :)

I taped it up so I wouldn't paint the metal and then spray painted it all with some primer then used some of my favorite pink spray paint for the overall color. I then used a screen printing sheet for the chandelier image. I used some ribbon around the the edge of the suitcase to pull it all together.

We love it!

A nice girly suitcase.

I LOVE IT!!! The suitcase I used at the hospital when I had my Alie Marie is beat up and faded but I just can't throw it away. WAY to sentimental. Now I know how to spruce it up! THANK YOU!! :)

I love it! Nobody else would have one like it, so you sure couldn't 'lose' it on the carousel at the airport!

How cute....that is a mighty big suitcase....is she packed for the year?! And the model is adorable! Thanks for sharing at It's Party Time Thursday@PonyTails&FishScales!

I love the dress the cutie is wearing in the pic also. I love making my girls dresses and want to make one. So for the back you sew on a loop and then pull a strap through and bow tie them together? Do you happen to have a closeup pic or tutorial on it...I'm a very visual person...thanks!
