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
