Clutch Upcycle: Trying out Leather Paint

Hello everyone!

So today I have a new upcycle for you! I have been intrigued by a product I heard about over the summer (probably on Pinterest called ‘leather paint.’ Well I somewhat forgot about it until I came to acquire this cute little clutch.

While it was cute as is, I couldn’t help but feel it needed a bit of a pick me up. While thinking of ideas of what I could do for this little number, I remembered the leather paint! I went into research mode right away and found some here and ordered a few different colors.

As soon as they arrived (rather quickly too!) I got to work on painting the clutch! I decided to make the main body of it a sort of shimmery champagne color, and then, to add some excitement, I painted the trim a pretty teal blue. I’m quite pleased with the results!

Now I have an itch to go to some thrift stores to find a few leather purses to spruce up!
