Passport Wallet Revamp


I'm getting ready for my trip to India. Dusting off my luggage, hunting for a paraben free sunblock and revamping my passport wallet! I bought this a few years ago, but I'm not diggin' the pale purple colour anymore. Instead of buying a new one I tried to figure out a way to make-over this one.

I went to the craft store and found this non-toxic & water based paint. I was skeptical that a water based paint would stick to the mock leather wallet, but it worked beautifully!



BEFORE (well almost before - I started painting and then remembered I needed to take a before pic).


AFTER - a beautiful deep purple (achieved after 2 coats of paint). I love it!

I personalized the back zipper with a blinged out A
