I had these two suitcases that I wasn't crazy about the colour of so I decided to paint them as well as cover the tops in fabric.
I love the fabric on the pink one. I'm on the fence about the fabric on the purple one though. I might keep my eyes open for something that will look even prettier.
If anyone is interested I used Martha Stewart high gloss craft paint in 'Hydrangea Purple' and 'Amaranth'. The purple took about three coats to cover while the pink took four.
