DIY bag makeover

In my previous post ‘please help, bag makeover’, I had posted a picture of my denim Fendi bag which I desperately wanted to give a makeover. After all the opinion, suggestions and me debating over the colours, I finally gave my bag a makeover.

I am SO glad that my bag has finally got a makeover. It took me about 3 days to give this bag a makeover. There are some bits where the bag hasn’t achieved 100% perfection, but I did try. I chose these bright colours because, I love bright colours and it definitely brightens and elevates my mood. And also, I didn’t have a bag so bright and colourful. I added the black colour because, once the colour black is involved, it instantly makes it wearable with most outfits. I cannot wait to use it now. So what do you all think of my bag? Like or dislike? Hope you have had or you are having an amazing weekend.xxxx

  1. The bag looks amazing! Seriously I am so impressed πŸ™‚ Maybe you could start a business revamping designer handbags? I know I have a random baby pink coach bag sitting in my basement along with another bag that I am thinking of selling but I’m so curious what you could do with them? Great job girl!

    • Aww.. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Hayley. I was losing my patience towards the end of it and I just could not wait to be done with the whole painting thing. Errmmm.. Taking it up as a business, I am not very sure about that πŸ˜€

      Great! You have a chance to give your bag a makeover. Are you thinking of any colour? Baby pink is again a light colour, so I am sure any colour can be painted on that and it might look good. Probably colours you don’t have or like the most? But thank you so much. xxxxxx
