Evening Bag DIY

A trip to my local flea market yielded a very affordable vintage evening bag. Unfortunately, it’s peach satin exterior was in poor condition. The interior was in excellent shape, although it did not have any labels to denote it origins.

I have been experimenting with metallic paints on leather for jewelry making and I thought it would be fun to try it on the satin. All I had to lose was $2 and a little time.

Well, voila…the results were very positive. The paint took well to the satin. I chose a rose gold shade and then added accents of a vintage chandelier crystal and jewelry piece.

I thought the gold tones worked well with the chain strap of the bag. Here are the before and after pictures.  What do you think?
