The Fancy Bag I Got Rid Of

Look at this ugly bag- it needed something. I have never used it, see you can still see the tags at the top. Perhaps beautifying it would make me use it. Either that or I would give it away.

It didn't take much. Like an artistic madwoman I sought out my collection of nail varnishes and begun slinging at it, to reveal....

It certainly looked much better, and the varnish dried on it really hard and solidly...stylish eh?

Unfortunately I still didn't like it and decided to give it away, see TASMANIAN MINIMALIST to see just how much I am giving away....I know someone somewhere will love this bag, but it just isn't me!

As for the upcycling element though, I think it worked rather nicely!

I never would have thought to use nail polish. Very creative!

Kudos for wanting to refashion something instead of wasting it. However, I am not a fan of what you did - I thought the purse was nice, and I thing the teqnique you used left the purse looking destroyed. If you liked it, then that's really all that matters! As your reader, my opinion is that this purse was better as it was before. I wish you many happy refashions!
