a customer's creation...

i love vintage suitcases and every chance i get, i pick one up...even if i don't make much money, i love the way they look in my booth!
at chateau de fleurs in december, i had a sweet customer purchase a cool back one and she transformed it into her cash box...
i love seeing the transformation...creativity at it's best!
the before picture is on the left of this bench...it's the suitcase on the bottom...it was black and beat up...

this is the after picture...super cute and very useful...

Hi Robin,
the suitcase came out so perfect and practical too. I take mine to all the shows and it's always ready to go. Something else you can add is hooks on the side to hang bags. I am working on another one just for tissue paper, small bags and hooks on the sides. Ciao Rita mammabellarte
p.s do you have a stand for it?

Love how this turned out! I hope to have mine ready for the next show, we'll see. I've gotta lot of plans in my head but don't always have the time to bring them all to fruition! Super Mom, Super crafter/painter/creator, Super Wife...how do I fit it all in?!
Blessings to you!
