Shoe Makeover


For today's post I would love to share with you a little project I worked on a couple of days ago.
 I decided to do a shoe makeover on these plaid sandals. I felt horrible not being able to wear these as much as I wish I could (love the cut) but with all honesty they were simply not me. And so being the person that I am, always taking initiative (or so I like to think) I went and decided to re-do these shoes by painting them black, because what colour can be more versatile than that? 
And so this little project of mine came to be.
All I used was some waterproof  black acrylic paint which I applied with some different size paintbrushes and some tape to cover up the sides which I didn't want to get messy.
I absolutely love how they turned out - more classic, easier to pair and wayyy more me!

Today's post was a little different from what I usually do, but I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my life.

What do you think of my shoe makeover? Have you ever done something similar?

  2. You did an amazing job! They look brand new. They were cute before but I understand that you can get way more use out of them like this. I would have done the same thing.
