Thrift store take 3–boy dress up clothes suitcase

I have three kids.  I have a LOT of play clothes…goes hand in hand right?

hand painted suitcase to hold dress up clothes

This is the play clothes before:

This is my thrift store steal for $3.00

I love this color..(I once bought a vacuum for the only reason it was blue)
ohhh. not so pretty. I ripped that all out. and took some new fabric and spray adhesived it on.
I did all the middle and then worked my way around the edges just tucking the excess underneath.
held a piece of cardboard up to prevent the spray getting on everything.
did all around the sides and then put the bottom piece on.
Took my glue gun and hot glued any loose pieces. so it was snug as a bug in a rug.
Outside
Painted a cream map….
I use this paint for just about everything.
Did a second coat of cream and added some brown….
painted dress up…I had just bought these stickers so I just copied the lettering and I used some stickers too.
I plan on making a girl one as soon as I find the right suitcase!
Fits perfect.
update:
my girl one is HERE!
