Suitcase Gets A New Look

I found this vintage suitcase at a garage sale this past fall.  It was quite dirty, but I thought I could give it a face lift by spray painting it an aqua color.  Here is the before picture.....

Here is the after picture...I also used my cricut machine to create a stencil for the front of the suitcase.
Thanks for reading!
