ScotchBlue 2011 Painting Party Blogger Badge

I was originally planning to do stripes in my boys bathroom, but then I remembered another project I wanted to do.

I placed my very first bid on ebay for an old Samsonite suitcase and I lostSad smile

first ebay purchase1 

I saved a picture of it because I just knew I was going to win it and I wanted to blog about it! When I didn’t win, I told myself that if I came across a similar suitcase, I would do my own stripes and guess what?

I found my ownSmile

After a quick wipe down, I taped it with the Scotch Blue tape sent to me

When I applied the tape, I eyeballed it because I didn’t want it to be too perfect (except for the clean lines I knew I would get from the tape!)

I used my beloved chalk paint (Henrietta color) and a sample pot of green paint I picked up from Lowe’s

I’m thinking about adding another stripe down the center of the case, but right now, I’m happy with the simplicity of the four stripes!

ScotchBlue Brand reached out to me to participate in the ScotchBlue Painting Party to celebrate the launch of their new ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector. My post represents my honest experience with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape. I am not being paid for my answers, but I did receive ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to assist in completion.

Love it! Oh my what a difference a little tape and paint will make!

Thank rocks! Great job.

I never thought about painting an old suitcase, great idea! Have you considered a damask stencil in the middle?

I would use the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector tape in painting the back wall of my new IKEA bookshelves. I think that painting them a contrasting color will really make the items in display pop, but it is soo difficult to paint bookshelves once they are already built.

Love your idea! It came out great! I love using Scotch Blue on my spray paint projects, makes super clean lines! Thanks for the ideas, going off to the other blogs now!

Love it! I always love seeing old things becoming new again!

Toqua's Crafts said...

I need to finish the house painting project! I'm just waiting for it to cool down so I can get it done!

Very creative lines on the suitcase!

Tonia Lee Smith said...

OH how pretty! I never would have thought to paint a vintage suitcase. I'm learning something.

very nice! I actually noticed your post about the 'cars' room and thought that would be a perfect use of scotchblue tape. We just bought a new house, and we'd like to make my son's room really special for him - I believe you've just given me my inspiration!

A room with a view said...

Beautifully done, love the simplicity of the stripes. I plan on doing a project with glass bottles I have been collecting to create a collection of decorative bottles for display using paint and ScotchBlue.

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

That is so adorable. I NEVER would have thought to paint that. In fact my mom has two great vintage suitcases I may need to get my hands on!

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

I love your stripes! Fun idea. I have lots of painting projects waiting for a little painter's tape. Next up--a mirror!

Karena said...

I want to use this in my powder room for a special design!

I adore your vintage suitcase!!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

Love your suitcase!
I could use some scotch blue for the same thing. I have a stack of suitcases just waiting to be transformed to something pretty like yours! Thanks for the chance to win some.

Unknown said...

Eeek! I love this suitcase! It is so so pretty. I could totally see a vinyl monogram in the middle for a cool wedding photo prop!

Janell @ House of Fifty said...

Very clever!! Looks pretty fab next to the pink desk! Janell

MB said...

I love the look of old suitcases, but with the stripes it really pops! I have a few old cases in my garage waiting for inspiration, now I think I've found it! That's where I'd use my Scotch Blue!
Thanks...Mary Beth

Kathy said...

I love this idea! I have a suitcase that my Mom used around 1950 that could use an update.

The poor do not grieve and do not regret themselves, the rich do not be proud. The degree of humans on the side of God is not because of the wealth of human beings on the side of God just because of their fear
