Early summer I picked up one of those old fashoined blue Monarch suitcases at the GW...
and would you believe,
just days before I decided if I'd see one I'd pick it up -
to paint, of course!
It was DIRTY!
But lots of potential!
My MIL had one like this -
it went with her everywhere she traveled
and was a handy foot prop as well...ah, memories!
Then in September,
I picked another larger size at a thrift shop when my sisters spent a week in Lancaster.
(i believe they thought i was
crazy a little loony walking out the door with this atrocity!)
But...i had a plan!
I hand brushed the smaller one -
and spray painted the bigger one...
How I love thee!
Girls, get yourself a spray gun and do the spray thing,
suitcases take FA-EVA! to dry -
it's definitly not a rush job!
Aren't they bea-u-ti-ful?!
I discovered the loveliness of sheet music!
I know I'm a tad late in the game and it's all over blogland,
They're perfect...perfect! for storage!
Here they are -
placed on top of my fivedollarbargain buffet!
I'm needing another one to store the stuff that's underneath -
but i've got a plan for that, too!
