My travelin' man!

These were fun. I found a couple of vintge suitcases but they didn't match exactly. I ended up using brown paper sacks, tearing them in to small pieces, and decopaging them onto the suitcase haphazardly, thereby creating a faux leather treatment. I aged it some with some brown paint. Painted my cowboy on one side and a simple statement on the back. Sealed it with polycrylic finish. The inside is still in relatively good condition. Just used baking soda to remove the "old" smell -- and added some sachets. Guests can use it for storage in the guest room.
