Project – Painted Toms

DSC_0005-2

So you’ve got a perfectly good pair of shoes that you never wear. Maybe they’re worn out, maybe they’re not. All it takes is a little bit of time and paint to give them new life!

I actually bought these Toms from a sketchy-ish discount site last summer. They may not even be real, so I didn’t feel too bad about giving them a little character. Literally.

These shoes were my inspiration, but I wanted mine to be simpler. I stuffed the toes of my shoes with newspaper, traced a medicine cup with a pencil to make the ears, and painted them with black acrylic paint. Super easy. The hardest part was gathering the nerve to do it. I’m glad I did, because now, I have the perfect shoes to wear for my trip to the Princess Half Marathon next month.

You can find other ideas for revamping your Toms here and here. Happy painting!
