I am a clog addict and during my 2 decades of world-living adventures have collected more than a few pairs of those comfy wooden soled shoes.
As much as I love each pair the wood tends to get scruffy looking fairly quickly and as sanding clog soles is time consuming (& incredibly tedious) I thought I’d share how to paint wooden clogs for those with shoes in need of an update.
Grab the quick and easy tute below:
Grab the clogs, masking tape, paint and a soft rag.
Tape off all of the areas you don’t want painted.
Grab the soft rag, dip it in the paint and rub the colour into the wood.
I’ve found that firmly rubbing the paint into the wood really helps it last and when it does start to fade the wood grain looks awesome!
Allow the paint to dry completely, remove the tape and enjoy your colourful clogs!
Perfect! I love it when a project turns out exactly as I had imagined!
Now how should I paint this 21 year old pair?
I can’t believe I’ve had these clogs for 21 years! They’ve travelled everywhere with me and have the dents and dings to prove it! I was thinking of filling in the chipped areas and painting the wood bright orange with some colourful floral details around the heel. Thoughts?
