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 in no time!

  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. =)

  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!
