These flats used to be pink and were purchased at Target probably 5 years ago for about 30 bucks. They have been an amazing pair of shoes; we sure have been through a lot together! One fateful walk home from work last summer, I got stuck in a serious torrential downpour which meant my favorite suede shoes died and went to shoe heaven. Kinda. Until I decided to spray paint them with leftover gold paint from other wedding DIYs. This is what happens with a short attention span and an affinity for painting anything gold. Now, I just wonder if I look like the crazy chic whose shoes are clearly spray painted OR the genius DIYer rockin’ a sweet pair of repurposed shoes. Hmm…good thing I don’t care because I get to wear my favorite shoes again!
1. Old shoes
2. Spray paint (I used Krylon Brilliant Gold).
3. Blue painters tape
4. Paper towels
5. Painters tarp or newspaper
As you can see, this is super easy. You just need some imagination and a well ventilated area; two crucial elements!
