After the grand success of my previous painted wooden clog refashion I thought it was time to finally repair and transform the pair that has been with me for 21 years:
I can’t believe I’ve had these clogs for 21 years! They’ve travelled the world with me and absolutely have the dents and dings to prove it! Check out how I mended and gave them a fab new look with my How to fix and paint vintage wooden clogs tute:
I’m not sure where or how those dents on the right came from but the smaller ones on left were caused when I used that clog to hammer a few nails into the wall of my London flat well over a decade ago.
I filled all of the dents and holes with sturdy wood filler and let it dry completely.
Taped off the areas to be painted.
Gave them a few coats of brilliant orange.
Then snagged a variety of colours and began carefully painting on my plaid(-ish) pattern.
Once dry I gave the painted areas a coat of varnish and gave the tops a good scrubbing.
I love my fancy schmancy reworked clogs!
