Vintage Suitcase Sign

Vintage Suitcase Repurposed as a Sign | Denise on a Whim
A friend of mine gave me this really nice vintage suitcase.
I just love the coloring on it.
The way it has naturally aged is quite beautiful!

I've painted suitcases before but I knew I couldn't paint over
the gorgeous brown time-worn distressing on this one!

What a gorgeous deep brown that looks fantastic paired with the black on the suitcase!

I finally decided to make a sign out of it.
This quote about adventure seemed to suit it to a tee!

I think it would look great on a mantle with a vintage map as it's backdrop!
