This purse cost me a whole two dollars. I love finds like this! It was cute enough as it was - just a simple off white leather purse. But I'm not always one for minimalism - mostly, but not always. This shines through when I'm DIY-ing, that's for sure.
I was inspired by several of this year's neon runway looks and felt I needed to translate it into a useful everyday piece.
Anyone can make a bag like this for themselves, it's easy to find one, easy to do and will have all your girlfriends asking you: WHERE DID YOU GET THAT!?
1. You guessed it. Neon spray paint.
2. A leather or faux leather purse
3. Painter's tape
Section off the areas you don't want to spray using your painter's tape or newspaper.
Be careful to cover up the hardware!
Spray an even coat over the entirety of the area you want to cover. You may want to do more than one coat, depending on the fabric of your bag. I only used one, but two would have probably made it more vivid.
Allow your bag plenty of time to dry in a warm safe place. Maybe a few days, depending on how many layers you choose to paint.
Leather is a little porous so it may take a while to dry.
After the bag has dried, you can remove the tape and rock that thang'.
