Ah...Christmas break! I love the week after Christmas, when no one has any responsibilities and you can just let down. It's such a fun, relaxing time! I've been spending the first few days of my break working on some projects. The major one I'm working on is something I started months ago, and ran into a number of snags with. Hopefully I'll be sharing that with you by the end of this week/beginning of next week, but I can't make any promises on that.
The other smaller project I did some work on is an old suitcase that's been sitting in our basement for a couple years. We got it from my grandma's house after she passed away. I like the sense of history it has, but as it was it wasn't very interesting.
I had seen lots of others around blogland who had painted their suitcases and made them look fantastic, so I thought I'd try my hand at it. Below is the result.
I'm pretty happy with the finished product.
Unfortunately the paint didn't stick to the suitcase that well, so when I transported it to take these pictures some of the paint rubbed off the handle. I've got some sealer that I'm going to spray the entire thing with though, which should solve that problem. :)
That's all for now! Hopefully I'll be sharing again with you soon!
