Shoe Refashion!! Painting With Fabric Paint!

Posted on

I purchased these shoes, at a shoe outlet store, for only $20 for both pairs.  So not technically thrifting, but thrifty.


I already have this exact same style in black and nude faux leather and love them so much.  They are the most comfortable flats ever and I get so many compliments on them.  These are in a light blue denim but I am going to change all that.


To change these shoes, I used masking tape, fabric paint, a sponge brush and the shoes.


I carefully masked off the soles of each shoe with the painter’s tape.  And then began applying a thin layer of paint to them.


I let them dry for 4 hours and then removed the tape. Ta da!!  Brand new shoes in a beautiful bright red and  bright blue.  Two colours which I think I will get much more use out of and I will be adding these thrifty hand-painted shoes to my collection.  What do you think?  Cheers, Michele

    I love them! We recently spray painted an old pair of Young Son’s tennis shoes black for work. He wears size 17 and we hadn’t found black walking/standing shoes. It worked in a pinch. Yours are pretty, though, not just serviceable.

      Thank you. I love them. I am going to wear the red ones with the dress that I made from the bed skirt fabric. Have a lovely day. Cheers, Michele
