I must admit I am kind of pack rat when it comes to certain items, especially if good memories or a sentimental meaning is attached to it. For whatever reason, this purse is one of those items for me. I have had it for about as long as I have been with Jon, and it has seen me through quite a few ups and downs- as you can see from the ware and tear above! I no longer carry it around because of its worn state, but I couldn’t bear to put it in my Goodwill pile. So, I decided on “Plan B.” Give it a makeover with some of the best paint on the planet- Martha Stewart’s Multi- surface Craft Paint! This stuff will stick to anything, and my handbag was no exception.
Here are the VERY easy steps of adding a little chevron to an aging bag.
Overall, I was pretty pleased! The paint added just the right amount of distraction but I was able to keep the gold hue that I love.
Of course I can’t stop at just one DIY project. Now, I’m thinking this would be an excellent way to add a little pizzaz to a simple and cheap jute or canvas bag. What do you think? Anything lying around in your closet that could benefit from a little painted design?
