The cutest way to not confuse your luggage with someone else!
I did this because i found an old suitcase in really good condition at Goodwill. I didn't like the color of it but loved the shape and the hard skeleton of the piece. If i had to change anything I would have waited till it was dryer outside and not so humid.

  • Step 1

    First step of making this adorable suit case is making sure the base is squeeky clean and free of stains. Windex or any all purpose cleaner should work.

  • Step 2

    Next, Lightly sand the suit case (obviously this suit case needs to be made of a hard material and not a soft floppy case) tape off any handles, locks, and zippers. Then spray paint the luggage with white primer (always do this to avoid multiple coats of your next color). I find spray paint works the best when using a sweeping motion with a minimum of 8 inches away from the project. Let dry for 30 mins to an hour.

  • Step 3

    Add in any pattern or shape stickers on the suitcase. (I used the round kind that you find in garage sales) Make sure all the stickers are fully on or you will have to do touch ups later.

  • Step 4

    After putting on the stickers spray paint over the primer and the stickers the same way you put on the primer. Let dry for an hour.

  • Step 5

    When the paint is no longer tacky and you can run your hand across it smoothly, peel up the stickers carefully. At this point there may be places where the top coat bleed under the stickers so take a paint pen and touch up the circles. This also makes the circles crisp and clear. Let dry.

  • Step 6

    Remove all tape and spray with a clear coat of spray paint. This causes any elements from ruining your snazzy paint job!
