My munchkin is now letting me know exactly what she likes (through lovely kisses & hugs) & unequivocally does not like (through screeches & fiendish tantrums). Her latest beastly outburst? Apparently the cozy new rain boots were just not acceptable – fortunately mommy came up with a wily solution that revamped them into a funky favourite:
Here’s the simple transformation trick + a pair of mine redone too!
Fabulous DIY Painted Footwear Refashions
Grab those functional yet plain boots (I had already jazzed them up a bit with fancy red ribbon laces).
Bust out the acrylics and paint away.
Snag the waterproof spray varnish, tape up every area you don’t want sprayed & blast them with 2 – 3 coats of shiny, protective goodness.
Let dry completely overnight, remove the tape & present them as fancy schmancy brand new boots!
The boot experiment was a rousing success so I thought I’d give it go with a pair of thrifted leather loafers.
As I’d painted her boots I figured it was only fair to let the kidlet do mine.
*I filled the shoes with newspaper & taped up all of the areas I didn’t want splattered with colour prior to letting the artiste loose.
After filling in the missed bits + 3 coats of protective varnish + 2 days to let everything get properly dried & set I now have a pair of the awesomest loafers in the galaxy!
