"OK, Take Care, Aloha . . . Dont They Just Start Over Again?"

Aloha y'all!πŸ‘™πŸŒž Summer is officially hereπŸŒžπŸ‘™ and I have been shopping around for the perfect Beach tote. Which I found. . .Yay!!!

The only problem?
πŸ’ΈThe price.πŸ’Έ
Just call me a basic kind of gal but I think it's ridiculous to pay over $100 for a beach tote.

So after 2 weeks of searching high and low for the cheapest possible straw bag the best selection I found was definitely at Target :-)
Is it even came with its own tassels!!!!😲😍


         
TARGET Merona Beach Tote $34.99 

Once I got home I pulled out all my paint brushes πŸ–Œand paint and then started to work on a stencil. Honestly I probably could have printed off something and then stenciled it, but I decided just to freehand it and lucked out with cute font.
I taped the stencil onto the bag then started painting.
It's best to start with white paint white paint really helps color POP especially on a neutral background like a straw tote. 
I know what you are thinking,
" Why not spray paint?"
 But I thought spray paint would be too messy and bleed on the bag so I stuck with regular paint.


I initially had my πŸ’š set on Green but sadly it did not πŸŽ‰popπŸŽ‰ and all I had left in the house was pink paint so I decided to do a few coats and viola!!!!
The one regret that I do have is I wish I would have capitalized the first level letter A but hey what are you going to do?
 It still looks pretty awesome and I saved $73!!!!
  Which I can use for tropical drinks🍹 when John and I go on VayCay this week!
