I found this metal suitcase at the Flea Market and thought is was very cute, so it became mine!
I really fell in love with the handle and the inside pattern ( I know that sounds strange, but it is true).
I mixed up some home made chalk paint and gave the suitcase a paint job. I asked my daughter what she would use this suitcase for and she said "stuff" (pre-teen description) so I decided to stamp "stuff" to the front in black paint. I love how it turned out.
Here is my stamp set-
What makes these easy to use is that one side of each letter is a magnet and there is a metal block to pick up the letter and press down with--Easy-Peasy.
The final step was using dark wax to seal it.
