My friend is getting married and honeymooning
in New Zealand. I'm a bridesmaid, and my duty for the bridal
shower was the "wishing well." In my opinion, wishing wells are
an archaic tradition so I decided to make it modern.
I chose a honeymoon theme and to create the "well" out of a
vintage suitcase. After a few days of searching, I stumbled upon
this gem at a thrift store. It's an old-school Samsonite.
I really liked the color, the size was perfect,
the inside checked out and the monograms were two M's.
The couple's names are Matt and Meg. Score!!
The is how I customized it. All it took were stencils,
a bottle of spray paint, stickers and patience.
in the case, and it looked really good.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture, my bad!
Prior to this project, it didn't dawn on me how cool vintage
suitcases could be. I definitely need one for myself. If not to use, to have as decor.
Another item on my list of things to look for while thrift shopping!!
