so a few years back my aunt gave me this classic old suitcase and I attempted to decoupage. Now it turned out great but having gained a better sense of style my initial decoupage needed to be redone. I had found an japanese book at my local value village so i thought what a great way to make this suitcase useable again but to re-decoupage it. I keep the leather trim and interior untouched but repainted the rusted metal with a metallic white paint. Oh and just incase you were wondering, I'm pretty sure the japanese book is about hair styling, but my inability to read japanese leaves me a bit in the dark.

Before (the sides looked similarly awful)
