This overly shy, vintage suitcase sat in my closet for over two years. She waited patiently for a partner so she could become stylish storage.
The day finally arrived when she set her eyes on this vintage wooden luggage rack. It was love at first sight, capturing his heart with a ruffly glance. However, before their relationship could progress, she had to get a makeover. After all, it’s not just everyday you find your perfect match.
Using a small sponge roller, she was painted with DecoArt’s Chalky Finish paint in the color, Timeless, a soft, creamy very light beige. It went on smoothly, covering all her rough edges and curves. [While the paint dried, her new found love received his own salon treatment with a quick coat of the same chalky paint.]
Then it was time to add a design element to her new look. She chose the classic look of feedsack stripes, using the stencil from Maison de Stencils.
Just a light spouncing (yes, that’s a word) with DecoArt’s chalky finish paint in Serene & Legacy gave her a pretty glow.
Do you like her new look?
Here she is in all her glory, ready to be used as a side table…
or fashionable storage. Either way, she relies heavily on his strong sturdy legs for support.
No matter what the occasion, this new couple is ready to paint the town red!
Who knows? They may even plan a trip together in the near future.
I’m so excited that this project is the February Feature of the Month at Vintage Charm!
