More Shabby Luggage

Remember these?

They were so much fun to make, I decided to alter an old train case that I found at a thrift store for $4.99.

I covered it with burlap and added denim fabric, some twill tape, some ribbon, fabric rosettes, some twine and a skeleton key.

And here it is…

I just love making these…I have a feeling this won’t be the last of them!

Whatchu think?

  3. They.are.gorgeous! I have an absolute addiction to old suitcases! I have a couple sitting in my breezeway right now. I picked them up at a farm sale last weekend but these ones are leather and won’t be ‘renovated’.

    I hope you don’t mind if I’m a copycat on a couple of others though. I just made my first rosettes last night but they don’t look nearly as good as yours!

    Love the idea! I’ve done somewhat the same thing with larger cases. We’re limited space wise here, so my husband and I decided to incorporate your idea and go looking for the travel case size. Buy a small, cheapie shelf unit (decorate accordingly) and try to get enough cases to fill the shelves. These can be decorated to match and labeled as well. This would eliminate a lot of little boxes filled with items you can never find, I hope I can have this done by spring! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
