After reading that title are you thinking that I’m crazy? Well I am, but not because I spray painted some boots… hehe. I am definitely daring when it comes to crafts. I really wanted some colorful boots and I’m too cheap to buy some. So I went to my closet. I have 6 pairs of boots, 2 black, 3 brown and 1 red. So I took my least favorite brown ones (I got them from a garage sale for $1) and changed them up a little bit.
See here are the boots before. I like them, but not as much as my other ones, they are just cuter.
I took some gloss spray paint and just went at them. You know when you do that first spray and you think to yourself, “well I can’t undo it now”. Yup, thought that with them. But I love the color!
And here they are all painted. I actually love how the there is a little brown left on the stitching, it gives it more character.
I wore them to church on Sunday and I loved it.
Aren’t they so much fun?!
Here are some mistakes I made. I painted the zippers. They still work fine, but it takes some effort to get them up and down. I got paint in the inside. I came home with blue paint on my legs and the paint would stick to my legs. Other than that, they are great! So when I paint other pair (yes I’m going to do this again, I’m thinking I need a grey pair!), I will tape over the zipper and by careful not to get paint inside.
Let’s keep in touch!
