Turn An Old Suitcase Into a Picnic Basket

I had this old suitcase in the garage collecting dust, so I gave it a new life as a picnic basket. All it took was some paint on the outside, some new fabric inside, and some elastic bands for plates and cups.
The exterior of the suitcase was pretty disgusting, which is why I never used it, even as a prop. So I cleaned it and painted it.
I also ripped out all the lining on the inside and replaced it with new fabric and trimming.
And I staple gunned some elastic on the top compartment to hold plates, cups and flatware.
