When my sister got married 2 years ago (WHOA!) I purchased some beautiful white shoes to wear in the wedding.
I love the shoes and they are super comfortable but white isn’t really my color and I was fed up with these gorgeous shoes sitting in my closet not getting any wear.
Isn’t the toe bow adorable?
What to do?
I decided to paint them!
I know! It sounds scary but honestly-what is the worst that would happen? I do not like the color or the shoes turn out horrible and I never wear them? Already there!
First I gathered my supplies:
Tulip Fabric Paint in Bright Yellow (it’s what I had on hand)
a foam paint brush
a cheap small paint brush
paper napkin (to protect my rug, since I painted on the floor of my living room watching Friends)
Now, get to work painting!
This is the shoes after 1 coat of paint with the foam brush. You can see some unevenness and some spots too small and tight for the foam brush.
I let this first coat dry and put a second coat on with the small paint brush and finished with the foam brush again.
The final product:
I know the color looks a little uneven in this photo-but it is merely the glare.
I like that the second coat dulled the brightness of the yellow a little. These will make perfect spring and summer heels!
What do you guys think? AND what should I wear with these heels?
