DIY: Painted Shoes

Monday is here again - working, working, working. I enjoyed my weekend & you?? Last night, I had the pleasure of meeting several bloggers prior to Blogfest & we shared stories and appetizers, cocktails and so on. Fun time!

Today I'm bringing you an easy breezy DIY project - from shoes I actually had on last night.  These particular heels have been a part of my wardrobe for about 4 years now. I've never been crazy about them so, with all the neon craze going around, I figured, why not add some neon accents to them?? ....with PAINT!
 
All you need is paint, creativity & a good pedicure to make your shoe look
pretty! You can CREATE any design you wish, but I decided to do abstract art.

I chose a hot pink color by Pebeo paints, a favorite of mine! Then I added a few other accents in gold & black. The design I chose was inspired by the painting in the background....lovely isn't it?
 
Now hopefully you'll get out your old shoes, and put them to use!








Would you consider doing this to spice up one of your shoes??

  2. I've painted shoes before as a bridesmade to match what the bride was wanting, but didn't think about being more creative to actually make a pair that I wanted! Such a fun (and original) idea!

  19. I just did DIY toe cap shoes using a pair of shoes I wasn't really that fond of and a can of spray paint. They turned out great and I've worn them more since painting them. I love the colours you chose for yours, especially the pink base which pops against the bronze :)

  20. I've seen a few painted shoes tutorials recently that turned out super cool, but these are the first I've seen that I'd actually wear. Very pretty. You have me hunting for a pair in my own closet that are screaming for a neon make over.

  33. I am not lying, I actually painted my finger nails the exact same colours this morning, it pretty much looks like the shoes! haha And then I came across this post. Ko-inky-dinks.

  35. eklatt: Yea, it does take a little bit of courage to pick the right shoe and just go for it. You don't want to ruin one, thats why i suggest using an older shoe you don't wear as often... :)) Good way to practice!
