Materials Needed:

  • Painter's tape
  • chalk paint
  • paint brushes
  • primer (if needed)

Step 1

Use painter’s tape to tape off the suitcases’ hardware and handles.

Step 2

Paint each suitcase a different color, using chalk paint for a matte look. (If the suitcases are fabric or plastic, as ours were, prime them first so the paint sticks.) Let dry, then stack them.
