DIY Painted Purse

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

As you may know, I have been on a bit of a painting/DIY spree lately. A few months ago I glittered a pair of heels and a few weeks ago I painted a pair of flats. After I color blocked my leopard flats, I had some of the gold paint left and I wanted to color block a purse I had lying around. I found this F by Fortuna Valentino bag at the thrift store for six bucks, so no harm if I didn't like the results, right? In fact, I was actually very pleased with my results!

The Original

I didn't really have a plan, so I just started painting specific sections

I painted the pocket flap, the entire bottom and a little section near the handles. I didn't want to go too overboard with it

The Final Product. I love that I painted the bottom, it gives it a surprise element :)
