It's summer and it's just the best time to wear everything in technicolor, especially with shoes. Last week, I did a little makeover to my black gladiator sandals and turned it from blah black to a vavavoom rainbow inspired sandals! :-) Let me share with you my little DIY summer project.
You will need :
-an old pair of sandals
-gloss polymer (this is used to thin out the paint)
1. Clean the sandals. Make sure that it is free from dirt and dust. This will ensure that the paint will stick very well to the sandals.
2. Choose the colours that you would like to use. In my case, I chose blue, green, red and yellow. To make it more summery, I added a little white to the colours to achieve the pastel shades. Be sure to mix the right amount of paint for both sandals. I also added a little gloss polymer just to thin out the paint.
3. Paint your sandals. It's up to you to choose how you want to paint it. You are the designer so feel free and just enjoy! Just make sure that you make them identical with each other.
4. Leave them to dry.
5. Wear and show them off to your friends! :-)
Wear it with jeans and a plain top, or a dress, or shorts and tank top, the list is just endless. You can actually wear it with whatever outfit that you like. :-) It's summer! It's the perfect time to pop some colour in your life and with your wardrobe as well! :-)
When I wore it at work, they could not believe that it's just one of my diy projects. They actually thought that I got it from a shoe store. It got me thinking that I may be able to turn my little projects into something that I could earn a little extra income. What do you think? *wink*
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my project. Why don't you try making your own? We still have about a month and a half of summer! :-)
