This is a piece of luggage that I have had since I was a little girl and used for trips to my grandparents farm.
It comes with fond memories of tea parties with my grandmother.
I love the case, just not in love with the color anymore.
So I gave it a good coat of primer first:
Then a couple of coats of Old White:
I then I made a Compass Rose stencil and adhered it to the top of the lid:
Delicate little sucker I tell you!
Then I gave the top a couple of coats of French Linen.
I then removed the stencil once the paint had dried.
After all that had dried, I went over the whole piece with a stain and gave it several coats of a finishing matt coat so that it protect the paint job.
Here the finished piece with a little French and a little Steampunk mixed together!
Not bad for a few hours work!
Bon Voyage, Oui!
