The Vintage Suitcase

 Here is the leather suitcase that I did a makeover on for a shop display.

 I gave it a bit of a polish and painted the inside chalk USA.
 Then I coffee dyed some muslin for draping in it to soften the look, added a couple of handmade fabric flowers and a little paper flower made from torn book pages.

 This is where you will find some silver-plated, vintage cutlery and the travel charms that I have on the shop blog.

 I have also included some antique mother of pearl buttons.
 Amazing what you can do with an old suitcase!
