Vintage Glamour Cases

I have a love affair with painting and fluffing vintage suitcases!
I just finished these two vintage Marilyn Monroe glamour cases and they are by far my favorites!
I will be featuring the young and fabulous Marilyn Monroe in my booth at Cadwell's Flea Market!
I would love to make a couple more for myself to store magazines and other treasures in! 
 These old suitcases are decieving...many times they have been stored well with beautiful interiors, but their outside color makes me want to run for the hills. 
An easy transformation using paint, spray adhesive and a pretty picture!
I brush paint mine with three coats or you can use spray paint.
Use a pretty vintage piece of lace or scarf to wrap the handle in.
 Marilyn is just fabulous and makes for such a glamorous suitcase!
Notice the young Marilyn Monroe on the pink suitcase her eyes are bright as she gets more famous Marilyn's eyes change.
I will be sharing this with the fabulous

Big squishy hugs,
