Ok, maybe I have been wearing this pair like everyday almost. Part of that is because they are so comfortable. The other reason is that the black shoes, ok, navy blue, but no one can tell, ended up being more uncomfortable than I anticipated. The really cute and comfy suede mustard flats I have some how disappeared during my move. Maybe I left them behind?? And, a cute pair of sandals I have, are just that, sandals. I can't wear sandals everyday.(Yes, it's warm enough where I'm at to still wear sandals. Don't hate me.)
I have other shoes but most are just too uncomfortable right now. I use to be the girl who wore heels with everything. Oh, the good ole' days:(
Anyhow, we have to budget our finances. And I'm sure we could squeeze me in some new shoes but I hate to buy a new pair when these are perfectly fine except for how worn they look already. Anyway, here are the shoes. Funky, right?
|After and Before|
I was getting tired of being mistaken for a panhandler, so something had to be done. In the name of all things thrifty, I decided it was time to break down and try to salvage these puppies and leave our budget be.
I noticed Mod Podge seems to be able to do everything. I also noticed the silver glitter and mod podge were sitting right next to me which made a light bulb go off in my head. This just might work for my flats!
While my flats were not exactly glittery, (and I really don't like glitter, not on my clothes anyway) they were shiny. I thought I might be able to fix these up so that I can
I took Mod Podge and coated these pups down. Then, shook glitter all over them til they could hold no more and tapped all of the excess glitter off. Now, at that point, my shoes unfortunately looked as if they were designed by someone named Dorothy Gale of Kansas. I couldn't deal with that. So, I was getting ready to get the blow torch and spray paint out when I spotted some metallic silver acrylic craft paint.
I took the paint and coated the shoes thoroughly and it took the level of glitter down a notch. Phew! Then, I sealed them with Mod Podge. I did another round just to see if I could make them look as unglittery(is that a word?) as possible. It worked well enough. So here is my after:
