White French Suitcase Storage

Recently I found a suitcase at a garage sale,
the inside in perfect condition...

I gave the suitcase a coat of Old White Annie Sloan chalk paint then added an image to the top that said Paris from

The word Paris was printed out on a laser printer in reverse. 
I cut around the word then coated the image with Modge Podge.

When the Modge Podge dried, 
I re-wet the paper and rubbed off the backing, 
leaving the perfect image on the suitcase.

I waxed the suitcase with clear wax, then added
a metal fleur-de-lis to the handle.

The suitcase will look beautiful in the bedroom...
Make-up, hair brushes... all in a stylish French storage box.

Update: This cute little suitcase sold!

  1. Perfect! But not sure I'm getting this... you mod podged ONTO the suitcase? And then wet it ON the suitcase? Is that correct?

  2. I am not surprised it sold already. It came out beautifully! I'm still determined to master the mod podge method but for now I've been using the omni gel method. =)


  3. Great makeover and great find! So clean inside!

  4. Decoupage Is making a big comeback-I did some today on a file cabinet

  5. I need to give this another go. I tried last year and I never posted the little box I did because you could still see paper. Yours looks flawless!

  6. Complete adorableness! Love that shape of case! Oh the memories....

  7. I am not surprised it sold so quickly! It was such an amazing item. Great work on the outside.
