Refurbished Purse: Paintified, Leatherfied, and Studified
I found a purse that I probably bought years ago and never used. The material was probably very cheap and so it started tearing and peeling... so instead of throwing it away I decided that it needed to be fixed. Here are photos with my new and improved purse from my random photo shoot (as in I jumped out of the car and someone took these photos within 3 minutes time...I know, so professional).
First I painted the leather with red acrylic paint to bring a pop of color. I followed the technique from my other DIY Project.
I didn't have a rotary leather hole punch...so I used the next best thing, a push pin. It probably took a lot longer, but it definitely got the job done. The studs I used were 2 pronged, so I poked 2 holes and inserted the stud. Then I used a plier to bend the sides from the other end.
Also, I took out the Tommy Hilfiger buckle because I felt like it didn't fit and added studs instead.
