Yes, I love vintage suitcases. And I love all the projects online with ways to create, restore and decorate with them. This red suitcase was found at a local thrift shop as soon as I saw it I knew it would make the perfect baby storage/bed. Since the front was faded from the sun and or time, Mod Podge and fabric was the perfect solution! There are many tutorials online on how to recover one. It really is simple and easy. My only tip for you is to use a darker color fabric as the Mod Podge will show through. Just trust me on this.
After the outside was complete, I took out all of the old nasty insides and replaced it with fun colorful fabrics. This was a combination of sewing and the hot glue gun. Added a blanket and pillow for baby and called it completed.
