Chevron Purse

Happy Saturday all! Here's a project  I did with this little ditty of a purse I scored at a garage sale for $2 bucks. Hey that's the same price as the shirt I redid last month. CRAZY! This purse has good bones. I saw it as a beach bag at first , but since I only make it to the beach a few times a year I knew I was going to have to spruce this guy up.  

Supplies need for this spruce up if you wanted to try your own
Fabric paint in your choice of color I chose green, blue and white
 { i suspect that acrylic paint could work just as well}
Foam paint brush { one of those cheap guys from the craft store}
paint tray or just a piece of paper to hold your paint

Shhh, don't tell the hubs I did my project on the hard wood floors! I put some newspaper down!

See! I did! SO  for this chevron...i just went for it! I thought about trying to make a chevron stencil to make it "perfect", but my mind was in the " I don't care if its perfect" and " I only have 2 hours to finish this project' mode so go for it. The good thing about this is you can go in and make the lines thicker for make it look a little better if your chevrons aren't as you wish. 

I chose to do one green just a add a little bit more flair. 

The paint it wet here so it looks a little clumpy { does that describe it?!} I did the front and back and  thought I Yay I'm done! You see on this particular day I had started taking a morning class and a friend was watching my 3 yr old  and the other 2 were in school. As mentioned before I had 2 hours to finish before kids return and this took maybe 20 mins.YAY time to myself! Quiet time! All by myself time! 

But when it dried I just wasn't feeling it. It needed something more. So I added a white stripe down the middle of  the blue and green ...... Ta-da! I have been using this for my art class It holds everything! 

 Thanks for stopping by, What are you up to this weekend?
