Even old suitcases that are ‘marked up’ like this one
Can be made into a usable treasure. I took this one and another one that was marked on and missing a handle and PAINTED THEM BLACK! The one in the ablove picture was harder to paint because it soaked up the paint like a sponge! If I could do it over I’d probably SEAL the fabric surface first with something like gesso, before I painted.
The other one with the handle missing, we added legs to. We adhered two sections of 2×4 to the inside bottom of the suitcase (front to back) Once dry, I drilled my holes for the legs, through the outside of the suitcase into the 2×4’s. ( the legs were old used ones of course!)
