I decided with this thrift store purse that the modifications would only be with paint instead of adding any decoupage. The color choices are my go-to shades and are peacock inspired.
Combining different types of items, all from thrift stores, turned this bland Guess purse into a more dramatic color-blocked statement piece. The Guess hardware was removed from the zipper and covered on the front by a vintage owl pendant that was previously on a necklace. The sides and bottom were painted with three layers of crimson red acrylic paint and the material on the back was cut from an Asian themed Chicos shirt.
