My Upcycled Vintage Suitcase

A couple of months ago I found a suitcase for $5.99 and wanted to upcycle it. {Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.} I used mod podge to cover the front and back sides of the suitcase and then I painted a varnish on top of that to seal everything. I added some ribbon and a suitcase tag that I got at Michael's for 60 cents. Overall, this project cost me around $15. A pretty cute suitcase huh?

  1. I saw this on Modge Podge Rock's facebook page and I just wanted to tell you that you did a great job! It's adorable...I've actually been wanting to re-do one as well and just haven't gotten around to it yet! I would love for you to check out my blog..I'm new too! Keep up the great work with your projects! xoxo
