When I first saw this suitcase revamp at The 36th Avenue, I loved it. And then I noticed something special about this blog entry. This is an American Tourister suitcase in nut brown (with a sweet, 80s pebbled feel). THESE are the suitcases that my parents had when my brothers and I grew up; we took them on so many trips. And then people started getting suitcases like these on wheels, remember that? We still carried the American Tourister. And then people started getting rollie bags. By this time I didn’t live at home anymore, but my parents still rocked the American Tourister. Later they finally graduated to something else, but I’m wondering if they still have ATs. Probably not, because I remember one of the large ones being about the size of a car hood. But you need it with a family of seven!
I love the way that Desiree took the ugly marbled brown and turned it in beautiful Miss Lola (her name for her bag) above. It’s really amazing given all the nooks and crannies on the suitcase. She has a detailed tutorial for you on here blog right here.
