I Spray Painted It!

Well, my shoes that is! Yes, I wanted to spray paint my old shoes after I saw this. I had these shoes for like four years now and I bought it at a secondhand store for about $4. They're just so comfy to wear and since I bought it, I have been wearing them a lot. The only thing I don't like is that it's getting old and I wanted to have a fresh new look to my good ole' shoes, so I did the shoe spray painting and it works for me! Click on the link above for the tutorial. I would have done my own tutorial, but I figured that there are many tutes going around the blog world already that I will just give you the links to the sites where I found it. Thanks to Kathleen of Grosgrain for such a clever idea.

What is my son's photo has to do with this post? Well, it was the same time I was spray painting my shoes and my son was also busy doing something else. He found the petroleum jelly and started rubbing it on his head like it was a pomade. Kids will be kids! So silly!

Waiting to be spray painted. Make sure that you taped it well to avoid the paint to leak on the sole of your shoes, not unless you want the whole thing spray painted. I guess you can do that if you prefer. The only thing I did not do was that I didn't coat it with polyurethane to avoid cracking or fading, but so far it's good and I have not seen any problems yet. I love it because it's like getting a new pair of shoes without literally having to buy a new one. The paint is called sun yellow and if you have noticed, I have a lot of yellow around my house, that's because I am into yellow craze right now. I love me some yellow!

It was a bit sprinkle-y (is that even a word) today and chilly so mommy had to dress up warm. The shorts by the way is a Jordache Vintage cut off shorts that I got from the rummage sale for around 50 cents. Awesome!

I hope you like it! Have a great night, everyone!
