{Spray Paint your Shoes}


Spray paint turned these shoes from ugly ...



to adorable! :)



I found these shoes at Walmart on clearance for $3.00!
They were suprisingly really comfy ... 
but white shoes are not my thing!

No problem though - 
Spray Paint fixes everything!

I cut off the bows, taped off the soles with some blue painters tape
and stuffed the insides with trash bags ....


Then I started spraying! :)
ok - so maybe yellow was a bad choice.
I'm still debating whether I like it or not! :)

Be patient and wait for them to dry.
{this is the hardest part for me} 

Remove the tape & you've got some cute, cheap new shoes! 

Add some Pom Pom Shoe Clipss and you're in business!!


{Not too shabby for $3.00}

TIPS:
- If the shoes are glossy like mine - use primer first!
(and maybe try spray paint for plastics? I'll try that next time).
- Use a clear coat at the end to keep it from chipping!

  1. That's a great idea! I don't think I have a crafty bone in my body. That's one reason I love mommy blogs that are. :)

  2. That is such a great idea!! I love the clips. I am so not a crafty person, I think of great crafty ideas but never put them to work. Glad to have found your blog on the Bee Friendly hop.

  3. I LOVE them! I'd be interested to know how the color holds up, if you can re-spray, etc. You could do an update in a month or two. :)

    I'm a new follower from the Bee Friendly Friday Follow. I'd love it if you'd visit A Helicopter Mom and follow me back!

    I'm also having my FIRST giveaway of a Limited Edition Fine Art Print. It has very low entries, so I'd really appreciate it if you'd drop by and enter.

    Have a great weekend! Thanks. :)

  6. So cute, so easy! I also love the color combo of the clips with the bright shoes. Kinda a fun twist of the nautical themes that are hot right now.

    And please! Do a follow up post!
