Lauren’s work schedule has been crazy, so I am here again today. I have just 2 more days of work and then I have some time to relax and get some projects done, before heading back to school. I have quite a list, so let’s see what I get done!
Today’s makeover is an easy one. I did a quick makeover on a pair of Skechers that I have. I bought these awhile ago from Ross, because they were so comfortable! I have had other styles of this same shoe. The problem was, I just never wore this color! I thought about getting rid of them, but they are so perfect for school and so comfortable for being on my feet all day. I finally came up with the brilliant idea of painting them! I figured, what do I have to lose? I don’t wear them anyways!
I found some Tulip Soft Matte Fabric Paint in Marine Blue. I actually thought this would be more of a navy color and I would paint the stripes, white. Well, the color was a little more royal than I expected.
I painted 3 coats of paint on each shoe. They actually turned out pretty well! And the color looks kind of like denim.
I certainly didn’t do a very professional job, but the other teachers at work thought I had bought a new pair of shoes! Several of us have these Skechers, so we notice when someone is wearing a pair!
They are perfect for work and for running around town. I can wear this color so much more! Fabric painting will definitely become an option for me if I have other items I don’t wear because of the color or if they are just faded.
So, this experiment turned out well! I’m so glad I took the chance and gave this a try! Have you tried painting anything with fabric paint? How did it turn out? Hope you all have a great weekend!
