So, I've been MIA due to two exams I had this week and work, ahh! But I'm finally back & updating the my Blog, and I have a fun D.I.Y. for y'all!
I had these old white cowboy boots I got a couple years ago at a thrift store for like five bucks! I wore them to a concert ONCE and they've been sitting useless in my closet ever since....
So I thought they would work well for a DIY :)
Materials you will need:
1. Old boots
2. GOOD scissors
3. Paint (i used black & got it from Ace Hardware for $4)
4. Brushes (try to use foam, the bristles break off of the other kind)
5. Paint opener
6. Lace & old necklace (optional)
As you can see, these boots are scuffed and in horrible shape..
Tape off the edges of your boot- I recommend using that blue painters tape...but all I had was duck tape.
Be sure to dab it really good filling in as many cracks as possible!
Let them try before putting on the second coat.
I used about 3-4 coats total!
Then comes the scary part!!!!
I cut mine a little longer than I wanted them to be on the first try just to leave room for mistakes!
So I was going to leave them like this. That was my original plan!
I chose black just cause I have so much black in my wardrobe... But you could go for a brighter color, or even make them two toned!!
But I just felt like they were kinda boring, so I wanted to add some extra stuff..
I chose some lace fabric I got for $8.50 at Jo Ann's Fabrics, & this old necklace
And for these last two steps I just simply used super glue.. and got it EVERYWHERE
And that's all, Thanks so much for viewing ! :)
