Thrift Store Handbag Makeover

I found this cute little suede (faux suede, maybe? Not sure) bag for a dollar at Goodwill recently, but felt I could dress it up a bit. I love taking something a tad boring and vamping it up! I basically just took  some fabric paint and followed the lines of the sewn pattern that was already on the bag. I think it made a huge difference. What do you think? H

Have you re-vamped anything lately? Show me your links!

  15. The way you painted it makes the bag look like it is woven. It adds great texture.
