I painted my handbag. Yes, this one in the photo.
I know it sounds kind of crazy, but it made me fall in love with it all over again…
After a year of
too much use a lot of love, my beautiful white bag had faded in parts and looked like it was at the end of its life. Ask everyone in the studio — it looked like it was time to cut my losses and bid farewell. But, I decided to try one last thing: leather paint.
It took my bag repair guy two days to paint it and — voila! — it’s good as new! The texture of the leather is a little harder, but the color match is perfect — and what a great way to extend the lifespan of investment leather pieces.
Sometimes all you need is a little stubbornness (and a great bag repair guy!) to ensure the love lasts a little longer…
