I know, I know. I share a lot of painted suitcases. I probably sound like a broken record. I really enjoy painting them though. It’s probably the traveler in me.
I have found that certain styles of suitcases will not sell ‘as is’, but usually sell well painted. This is one of them.
It’s rather blah. It’s also a bit on the cheap side with a plastic handle rather than leather.
But a little Dixie Belle paint in Caviar and one of Prima Marketing’s new gold Somewhere in France transfers give it an entirely new look.
It was just a happy coincidence that the transfer fit the suitcase perfectly. And FYI, this is another of the transfers from the yet to be released Spring 2019 line. They should be hitting retailers in mid-April or so.
There are 3 designs included in the Somewhere in France set …
As you can see, I’ve used the top section on this suitcase.
I used just the bottom two lines of the bottom section on the toolbox that I shared last week.
And again, as on the toolbox, the gold looks amazing over black.
I took the suitcase in to Reclaiming Beautiful (the shop where I sell on consignment in Stillwater, MN) on Wednesday evening, so if any of you locals are in need of a fabulous painted suitcase be sure to head to Stillwater!
Thank you to Dixie Belle Paint Co and Prima Marketing for providing the materials used for my painted suitcase.
