I love old suitcases. Always have. This one was in great condition inside too. I have this dream of my dd having all these lovely suitcases to hold all her dolls and doll accessories in. When I saw this one, originally a dull brown color, @ the thrift store--I *knew* I just *had* to have it! Plus I had recently been inspired by all these decoupage suitcases I saw online somewhere.
I used spray paint, taped the edges....which took FOREVA!....I did not have much tape so I fudged and some paint ended up getting under the newspaper I was using to mask it--it was windy, what can I say? I used bright pink and a light pink. The light pink looks white compared to the bright pink.
