I needed a pair of shoes to go with my black and white pinstriped suit for the "Rippin Ain't Easy" Sewing competition. I really wanted a pair of black and white striped pumps for the outfit, which I did find at BareFeet Shoes. Mori tried on these heels which were like 10 inches tall and she said her feet were mushed up in the shoes. I knew this was not going to work because she would not wear them after we took our pictures and that would have been a wasted $35.00. So I was on the hunt but I only had two more days to find a pair of shoes.
On my lunch break I went to Payless, to see what they had on clearance. I found a nice pair of pumps for $15.00 but none in black or white. I decided to buy the $15.00 burgundy pumps and paint them. I figured if I messed them up it would not be a big loss. Once I got them home I decided that I wanted them to look like wingtip shoes to go with my pinstripes. So DIY time it was!
Supplies needed for this project: Shoes (old or new) a can of Spray paint for your main color, a small can of paint for your wingtip painting, a clear gloss spray paint, paint brush and a sharpie marker.
You can Google a template if you think you need one.
I just free-handed mine from some of the shoes shown above.
I forgot to take a pictures of the shoes before I started adding
the white paint but I painted them glossy black.
I coated the white areas about three times each.
Now it was time to add the dots. Mine could have been a little neater but I was trying to get this done and dry for the next day.
Once you're done with your dots all you need to do is
coat the shoes with your clear spray paint and it's all done!
