This antique suitcase was a perfect candidate for a junky sign makeover. The top is a warped and has started to collapse, but it still stands upright. It was about time I did something with the drafting t-square that's been hidden out there for who knows how long.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the custom Vintage Market sign, then stenciled the bottom with white acrylic paint. No sealing or waxing required.
The fabric on the inside is sagging and still needs a good cleaning. Lots of old dust and even a few dead bugs. Yuck!!!
I painted the blond wood on the t-square, then created another stencil with my Silhouette. See the arrow pointing to the arrow? The end of the t-square needed a point, so added a few inches of an old folding ruler. Now there's no confusion about which way to go for cool flea market junk.
I'll be loading up the suitcase in just two short weeks for my next Vintage Market. In the meantime, I'll be busy making more junky signs from some of the stuff I found in my garage.
