I’d been wanting a pair of new sneakers for a long time. Why? No idea. I hardly ever wear shoes on a daily basis except when I go walking/jogging. I had a pair in a dirty-brown-military-green color. I think I bought them when I was going through the phase of ‘only-black-or-brown-are-proper-colors-for-shoes’. Bright reds and yellows and blues for sneakers? Oh the horror! Now I am repelled by anything that doesn’t have color.So I sat down over the weekend and gave my dirty-brown-military-green color shoes a much needed makeover. My dad entered the room, saw me happily sprawled over the floor, with paints and brushes spread all around me and said “Why would anyone want to paint their shoes?”
Men! They just don’t get it.
What you need:
1) A pair of shoes (Duh!). Pick the ugliest looking pair. So even if you mess up it’ll still look prettier than the original. Unless you are that bad at painting. Then I can’t help you.
2) Paints in whatever colors you want. I used fabric paints.
3) Brushes and cloth
4) Lots of free time and music
