I’ve had a busy week trying to finish up bits and pieces. I have lost count of the amount of unfinished projects I have, so I am committing to finishing at least two before I start another. Hands up who else is guilty of this? They are mostly crochet projects so I will see how I get on and hope to share in due course.
In the mean time I want to share this little project with you. I hand painted these old worn boots. You can see in the before picture they were not in great condition. I gave them a complete transformation, changing them from plain and boyish to girly, delicate, romantic, shabby chic…… I decorated them with pearls, satin ribbons, braiding and of course roses. I have them sitting on my desk, they could be used for holding candles, pens, make up brushes, flowers etc.
I hope this inspires you to get those paintbrushes out and give it a try. If you don’t fancy the idea of painting roses, you could try decoupage. This would be a great idea for keeping your child’s shoes as a memento of their childhood. I recently done a post showing a pair of work boots, have a look if you are looking for more ideas.
