The Unwanted Purse makeover :)

I hope everybody had a Spookalicious weekend parting hard and dressing up. 

Guess what! I didn't lol I was too lazy to get dressed and go party and my significant other lives 8000 whatever miles away and I don't feel like going all woohoo -.- yeah yeah BOO me..

Anyhow, There was a little ugly purse lying around the house and nobody knows who bought it or how we got it. Nobody liked to wear it and we used it to carry our nail colors in them for emergency when we were in Sri lanka for vacation. But most of the time it stayed there in the storage. 

I saw it earlier today and wanted to change this miserable fallow up to something that the "girls" in the house including me would use it. oh the misery! 

lets get on with making the world b'ful :D shall we...

Things I used to get this purse out of misery

White acrylic paint 
- Any two acrylic paint color of your choice
- paint brush(es)
- Glossy mod podge or clear nail color 
- A paper or fabric Doily or lace 

Here's how The Unwanted purse looked before the makeover 

I applied few coats, about 2-3 coats of white acrylic pain on the front pocket at first...and waited it to dry

To keep the edges clean I dabbed few drops of nail polish remover on to a cotton bud and cleaned the edges.

Here comes the Doilies! :) Place your doily where ever you like. I prefer to place it starting from the corner. 

Dab paint color of your choice over the doily making sure you'll get paint on in the cut out parts. ( also if you are using lace make sure the paint transfer in to the materiel though it nice and crisp) 

I over lapped my doilies so the colors will contrast out nice.. to the corners where there was no design I mixed the colors around with white paint and added a shading effect. 

I worked with white paint on the top part of this purse too. 
After finishing I applied a coat of mod podge over the painting. Don't worry if you don't have or donno what the shing is mod podge is just use a clear nail polish that you wouldn't mind using. It's just for the sake of protection of the work of art we did and to duh! give it a glossiness xD 

And here's The Unwanted in to everybody's wanted.. but seriously my mom and sister both asked me for it!

Too bad so sad... Finders, painters keepers I said.. 

Happy Painting!!
