How To: Turn an Old Suitcase into a DIY Picnic Kit

How To: Turn an Old Suitcase into a DIY Picnic Kit

With the April showers (hopefully) slowing down in the next few weeks, it's time to head outside for May flowers, and May sunshine, and May gardening, and May bike rides, and, if you're like me, May picnics!

Curbly reader Sibylle wrote in to share this amazing old suitcase transformation she just completed, by turning it into a reusable picnic kit, or a Birthday in a Box!   

She says, "Oh how I got lucky at my last treasure hunt 3 weeks ago! I bought an old suitcase for $15. I did not know exactly, what I wanted to do with it, but hey, it’s vintage, it’s a suitcase and it’s $15!

I knew, I wanted to paint it, most likely white {what a surprise;-)}, but no other plans besides that. Then Mr.T’s birthday came around, the weather got better and I saw this cute Birthday in a Box idea, and my picnic basket/birthday in a suitcase project was born!"
