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.


Someday maybe.

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.
