Green Suitcase Gets New Life


A few days ago I told you about a suitcase that I had picked up. I loved the green color but I didn't like the scratches that I could not wash off. I broke open the primer and gave it a light coat. It took quite a while for it to dry, I thought it might have been from the humidity but honestly I think it could just be the vinyl itself! Anyways once it was dry I stired a few sparkles into my paint can and painted the outside with two coats of white. I know you can not see it in the picture but there are light little sparkles all over the suitcase, just what I was wanting. It is still tacky to touch so I can't do much with it yet but soon!!!!

Oh, no! Here we go again! What are you going to use it for? How does the story end? Awww. ;) You are a creative lady, Dianntha. You have been blessed with the ability to see and bring out beauty in forgotten and dull things!

Love and hugs!
