so remember this suitcase? (of course you do...i just told you about it yesterday!).
i am pretty proud of myself...this being my first ugly-to-adorable transformation (teenage years aside).
the suitcase is made out of tin. it was a fiber-looking pattern with gold trim.
i raided my parents' stash of spray paint & found exactly what i was looking for.
i knew i was planning on covering the "body" of the suitcase & only needed to spray the edges.
meanwhile i searched my mom's craft room for some generic spray adhesive. and i went to the craft store & bought some scrapbook paper that was gender neutral...
you can see that it is far from perfect. my cutting wasn't precise. i missed some spots with the spraypaint. i even scratched the paint job already.
but all in all, i think it will be PERFECT for what i had in mind!
and watch out, i think this making-ugly-things-pretty business is addicting :) you might just see a little more of this on here...
