I picked up this luggage over the summer.
This wasn’t a good look, but I knew I could improve that. First I added a coat of white chalk paint. Then I taped off a couple of lines.
I painted it blue and waxed it up, and this is the final result:
I love how they turned out. People comment on them plenty, but sadly they haven’t found a new home just yet.
This fall I placed an absentee bid on another piece of luggage at an auction house. I won the bid, but sadly the luggage was in worse shape than I had thought. I just didn’t know if I should take the time to paint it or junk it. Then I saw a great idea in blogland and tried it for myself…
And this piece of luggage sold the first day at Charm. Turns out this ugly duckling turned out to be a winner.
