Suitcase revamp and jewellery display

A while back I shared some details of some old baggage that I acquired for under £5 each. I haven't done much with them since I last blogged about them but today, one case took another step closer to completion.

Here is the first case as it was when I bought it, after a few coats of paint, some decoupage with ripped up old paperbacks and some PVA it got put to one side but today Chris cut some battening and with a bit of no-nails and some lace I transformed the lid of the case into an earring display case.

I still need to work on using the base of the case for displaying some of my bracelets, I think I am going to need to delve into my fabric stash and create padded rolls to separate the bracelets and to secure them to stop them moving around too much.

I am loving the way it has turned out but once again, I am running out of time to do the things I planned to do! That's life!
