Pack Up Your Troubles...

...in an old suitcase (?) and smile, smile, smile.

A fun piece to use on the front porch to greet guests and useful too--you can store other porch decor in the suitcase, potting soil, dirty dishes...The girl who bought this is going to use it for her wedding reception as a decoration.

  2. Love this! I've seen some painted suitcases that really took away from the vintage charm buy your version just enhances it. And using it as a chalkboard sign was such a great idea. I have some less than attractive old suitcases that may be getting a similar makeover soon!

  5. Perhaps because I was just at the lake today, I love this and want to duplicate it so badly. I guess I'll need a lake house too. :)
