Barefoot Roses Suitcase!

I have a number of vintage suitcases, large and small, that I painted white. I added decals of roses to them and put them on plant shelves around my home. But after seeing one the other day with fabric on it, I was smitten! I have soooo much fabric that I decided to cover them in fabric. I've started with a beautiful pink roses one and will continue until all are covered in roses fabric. Could you ask for anything sweeter than this??!! And I only paid 50¢ for each of the suitcases. What a stunning difference it makes!


  1. What a fabulous idea!! Those will look wonderful with shabby rose fabrics on them. Kudos!!
