I recently purchased this bag from Amazon with some Swagbucks I had accumulated.
What I didn’t notice from the pictures, however, was that the hardware on the bag was brass. I liked it and was okay with it, even though I thought it was going to be silver. But then I decided to change it to silver, and I like it even more now. No, I didn’t have to out and buy new hardware (not even sure they sell stuff like that), I just had to pick out my favorite silver nail polish (Zoya Trixie) and easy, peasy, 15 minutes later it was transformed! Check out this easy purse refashion:
Step 1: Gather your supplies.
This would include your bag, the nail polish you want, and a well ventilated area to do your nail polishing, er, bag polishing.
Step 2: Tape around the studs and hardware.
This is completely optional (I didn’t do this) but if you’re worried that you won’t paint neat enough, you could tape around the studs/rivets or other hardware on your item.
Step 3: Go ahead and paint!
Only one coat was necessary for mine. It took about 15 minutes to paint the 28 studs and 4 hardware pieces on my bag. Let it dry and come back to a transformed bag! This would be a great thing to do with say a bag you love from Goodwill or Salvation Army but it’s in a metal you don’t like, and this can be done on things other than just handbags. Use your imagination.
And there you have a super easy purse refashion that anyone can do and it can really transform the whole look by such a simple change.
