Give life to an old suitcase with decoupaged sheet music.
Old suitcases still have a lot of potential even if they seem too far gone for redemption.
I picked up this suitcase at a recent yard sale. It had been used for storage and the ends had been labeled with marker. The inside was also pretty stinky, but…it was cheap and THAT spoke to me. 😉
The lining definitely had to go. The stink all but disappeared after I removed it.
There was no way to remove the permanent marker, but after cleaning it up, it was a matter of paint and paper to cover the weird stuff. Note: Permanent marker will bleed and shadow through paint, but I didn’t seem to have any problems covering it with the decoupaged paper.
Little bits of this and that added just the right amount of decorative charm to finish off this fun case.
Do you have an old suitcase in your attic or basement? Now is the perfect time to give it a restyled makeover.
