There are times in a girls life when she must decide whether to toot her own horn or not. This one wasn't hard to decide! Chris fully doubted my abilities with my spur-of-the-moment project idea...but he has since learned of my complete and total awesomness.
My mom purchased great shoes for me for the wedding. I do really love them. The only problem was though, that I was worried that they didn't fully match. See, I'm wearing a pretty white summer dress, with a cropped raspberry pink lightweight cardigan on top. Terra is wearing a frilly white dress with a black sash and tiny black flowers along the skirt, with a gorgeous matching pink flower to put in her hair. Chris will be in this black suit, white shirt and a pink tie that matches my cardigan. WHITE-PINK-BLACK. There in lies the problem. The darn black! I had nothing black in my outfit.
On a spur of the moment we stopped by Payless to look at shoes (BOGO ya know!).
For some reason, i fell in love with these shoes- they are a pale lavender. I'm not a ruffly type person, but they "spoke" to me, lol. And heck, they were only $8 down from $25
The second i put them on, the idea hit me. The shoes are fabric covered, and a simple design.
So off to Hobby Lobby we went!
Yes people, I PAINTED MY SHOES, lol! And it turned out 1000 times better than i saw in my head!
I took my time and painted (with a tiny brush) two coats of white fabric paint, pink fabric paint, and black fabric paint. Whod a thunk it that it would actually work!
So--what do you think?
