The other day I stumbled into my new favorite second hand store. The ReStore is run by Habitat for Humanity and has all kinds of fun stuff. My favorite side is the used hardware & tool part. I found this lovely metal suitcase there and snatched it up! It was an easy purchase for $4! Since I was wandering through with the kids, I didn't do a deep dive for anything else, but plenty caught my eye!
Here is it before white spray paint!
Of course this prompted me to take a second trip to find the local scrapbooking store. The Crafting Cottage has moved about eight times since they opened, but I found them! They had this great Painterly Paper by Fancy Pants that caught my eye!
I had to shabby it up further of course with gold paint, lots of extra washi, brown StazOn, and some flowers.
I am pretty sure I am going to line the inside with map paper, but I am still thinking on it.
Not sure if I'm finished with the outside yet too, but boy have I had fun so far with it!
I can't wait use this little suitcase! I think I'll store some mixed media things in it!
Happy Monday & thanks for popping by!
