I am still adding to my "vintage travel" themed guest room/study and scored this suitcase for $1.90. Two coats of gray chalk paint later it was looking better. I added a graphic of an old compass, distressed and waxed to finish it off outside.
Using Mod Podge I added some old music pages to the inside and gave the plastic insert several coats of black spray paint, putting the original mirror back in place.
Using a clear acrylic spray paint, I sealed the inside. To my pleasant surprise, the paint created an even more vintage look by darkening certain 'spots' of the pages!
Here it is filled and ready for guests who may have forgotten some 'essentials' and it can also be used by the ladies to sit and apply make up or do their hair.
