Story of our life: Just when we're itching for a new pair of shoes, our bank account suddenly won’t allow it. Stop torturing yourself with online window-shopping and instead try this quick DIY. It’ll breathe new life into your most basic heels and make you feel like you’re stepping into a brand-new shoe.
What You Need:
- Painter’s tape
- White acrylic paint
- Gold acrylic paint
- A pair of leather or faux leather pumps
Step 1: Use the tape to section off the portion of the shoe you want to paint.
Step 2: Start with the white paint and coat the toe of each shoe so that the leather’s natural color is completely covered.
Step 3: Once the white paint is completely dry, go over the same area with the gold. Set the shoes aside to dry.
Peel the tape off and voilà: Mama’s got a brand-new pair of shoes. (Kind of.)
